Merge tasks and tray icons

Registered by Irakli Gozalishvili on 2008-05-03

It will be very cool if systray and task functionality will be merged. I mean with this:

  1) if running task has systray instead of arrow below icon something different can be used
  2) on ctrl/shift/alt + right / left click on the the icon of such task popup menu of systray must be opened (it will be cool if it would be configurable in manager to replace standart popup with this on or to use this pop ups when ctrl is clicked)
  3) such kind of task must be visible on all viewpoints at list it can be configured separately from normal tasks.

Pretty much. To be more informative, you'd have to get the system tray spec to talk to the window manager spec so that it keeps some sort of (special) Window ID available for those tasks in the system tray which destroys the window on minimize/close. But I'm certainly no X expert. What I do know is that we can't do anything with regards to this feature until the standards do something about it.
