I would consider looking at the "container" widget, which allows you
to put a widget on the desktop that can in turn store additional
widgets.  I was thinking that a similar widget for which you can set
an arbitrary containment type (desktop, panel, netbook, etc) (or as an
option, inherit the parent containment type) would be good.  This
would allow you, in practice, to make something very much like a
nested panel if I am understanding what you mean correctly.  You can
nest this widget, which allows you to make arbitrary panels layouts
with any number of rows and/or columns.
