There is no messing with the autostart folder anymore, just some
config->writeEntry( "AutoStart", bool );

Hmmno, I also run kradio, kget, knetload and kalarmd all the time, all running
in the system tray. And I don't need to buy a bigger monitor, because they
only take ~60 x 80 pixels instead of 60 x 150 pixels.

I'm not fond of those, but I said that a long time ago :)

If you really want to keep the applet version, then refactor toplevel.* as it
should have been done long ago. Make one widget inheriting KSystemTray and
another inheriting KPanelApplet, the rest can be done in a different class.
