DockbarX is a sweet panel applet.  It let's you group windows together as well as pin launchers to it.  I'm trying it now on top of a regular menu.  It can also be used as a part of AWN where it does look nice.

This is just the sample from my desktop.  There are more screenshots available from Ubuntu Geek and Ubuntu Life.  More info (and a couple more shots) are on the GNOME-Looks page and Launchpad sites.

To install in Ubuntu, open up the Terminal...
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dockbar-main/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dockbarx dockbarx-themes-extra
 Once installed, right click the panel you want it on, select Add to Panel and scroll till you find it.  You can then customize DockbarX with additional themes and change its behavior.
