Adding Universal buttons to the Gnome panel

So, in my attempts to integrate a wiimote into the gnome desktop, I have found a way to create universal close, resize, maximise...well any button you want. It's all to do with simulating button presses.

Wiibuntu: Getting Started

Over the past few months, I have been playing with a wiimote and ubuntu.
If you've not looked into them before, wiimotes are a pretty nifty bit of kit. There basically a bluetooth mouse and are recognised by computers as Human Interface Devices (HID). But they do more than a mouse can, there is a InfraRed (IR) CCD camera, accelerometers and of course, a few buttons.
