I've had good luck with the Widget Logic plugin. It lets you use template-style logic for each widget. It's not quite the same as adding a whole new admin page just for conditional widgets (you would need to create and register a new sidebar, etc), but it's great for the quick-and-dirty 'get it in there now' needs.

Thanks a lot. Looks like a cool plugin, but I'm having trouble using it. After I've activated it what can I do to mimic a 'Homepage' widget? I just see two radio options that have appeared under the widgets screen; "widget_content' filter Use 'wp_reset_query' fix" - toggling either hasn't shown to do anything? – Arnold Mar 30 '12 at 12:53
