adding a gnome applet to the panel from the command line

Anyone know an easy way to add a gnome applet to the panel from the command line? This would help me speed up my edit-compile-test-edit cycles. For instance, I could have a 'test' makefile target that adds the applet to the gnome panel, allowing me to compile and test without using the mouse (as in Right Click On Panel -> Add To Panel -> ...).

Using the Panel Notification Area applet would probably work, as applications (like gaim) can have their icons appear in this area without an explicit 'Add To Panel' mouse click operation.
