It is possible to do that 0.4 Loki?

In previous versions of elementary OS (Luna and Freya) I remember it was possible; in the current version it seems not. At least in the elementary update PPA there were a couple of packages to install "super wingpanel" and "wingpanel slim", modified versions of the "vanilla" one so users were offered with more variety. Any hints?

It depends on what you mean by "customize".

As far as I can tell, the authors of those replacement panel projects have stopped development, so you probably won't be able to replace your panel with those dead projects.

Wingpanel still uses the panel css class and includes some new classes like maximized and translucent, so all of it's color changes are now handled in CSS and not hard-coded.

As always, all of the indicators are extensions for the panel and none of them are mandatory or hard-coded.
