I suggest putting it on the desktop of the selected users, as it is much simpler 
than trying to get it into the panel: just use a for loop in a script to copy 
the file (or symlink or a launcher complete with decorative icon) to each 
desired user's Desktop directory.   They'll still find it. Easier to remove down 
the road, too.
