[wp-hackers] Third Party Widgets

I have a question.

What on earth do widget developers have to do to make their widgets  
available for the new widget system? IOW, it's no secret I run trunk.  
No big deal. I ask for breakage and that's fine. As soon as widgets  
were brought into the core, all custom widgets became unavailable.  
They are active as plugins. But unavailable on the widget page  
itself. It might be okay if thats the only place they were  
unavailable because, hey, who really wants to move widgets around  
anyway, right? But they aren't displaying in the sidebar of the blog  
either. In fact, the only widgets available to me are the stock  
widgets which is relatively okay.

Again, I don't ask for a lot except I admit to asking for a broken  
blog. No problem. But what do those of us who WRITE widgets, say, for  
large blog networks with widgetized themes (:grin:) do to prepare for  
the WP 2.2 release?
