When you show the properties, you should be able to "set left click action:" to
allow you to run something like "xfterm4 -e htop" or whatever the person wants.

even hard coded to launch xfce4-taskmanager would be an improvement

hard coded is never an improvement, but a 'click action' would be cool!
Maybe a [l|m|r]-click option can be added to the xfce4-panel libraries?
That way a plugin may only have to configure what action to take, and the panel handles the launch of that command?

That feature has been added in revision 3238.
The command field only accepts a limited amount of characters which is too few if you want add a longer command like e.g.:
Terminal --title=htop --geometry=103x62 -e htop
The number of characters is now unlimited. I also added check boxes for "run in a terminal" and "use startup notification".
The default command is set to xfce4-taskmanager
