AFAIK, no. Previous  attempts don't embed actual terminal, but use aterminal 
like component with application controlled command to execute.

Could I throw one thing in here which probably isn't immediately helpful.

A couple of months ago, working on Linux, I experimented with embedding Xnest/Xephyr sessions in LCL (GTK2?) panels, with the object being to present multiple copies of a program that refused to run more than one instance per X server on the same screen.

It didn't work directly, but I was /was/ in the end able to embed an xterm in an LCL panel, then embed Xnest/Xephyr in the xterm... it was crude since I'd put minimal effort into sizing etc. the panels, but it worked as a POC.

So I suspect that there's something- possibly a Window Manager hint- that's being unnecessarily propagated into panels that possibly needn't be, and that is likely to cause problems embedding at least some standalone programs (as distinct from specially-written components).
