OK, I think I found the answer, the Akonadi Tray Utility.  But boy is it well

I found reference to it on the web, so I asked the Panel Toolbox to give me
a list of widgets (the logical place to look for it I thought) and there was 
nothing there.  So I thought maybe there is a separate debian package
for it, but no.  

Then I came across http://www.theirishpenguin.com/tag/akonadi/ and in 
there is said to look for it in the kickoff launcher.  So I did, and now I have 

But from a usability point of view this is all wrong.  If I want to start an 
application, I go to the launcher.  If I want a widget in my task bar I go 
to the Panel Toolbox and add it.  Would it be possible to put this in the
right place next time around?
