 There are more problems with the systray than just technical problems, as the 
systray is rather broken semantically (or, to be more precise, nobody really 
knows that the proper way to use it is). Your proposal aims to fix some of 
them, but there are still some that seem to remain. I'm specifically thinking 
the "the taskbar entry doesn't quite fit me for whatever reason, so I'll roll 
my own in the systray" mentality, which leads to all kinds of problems 
(inconsistent way of showing windows, the window titlebar close button not 
working consistently, etc.). Is there any plan to fix that?
