Check kde-apps.org, there is an app which can dock any other app in the 
system tray. It is called KDocker. I think you have to compile it yourself 

You can also use kstart --skiptaskbar --tosystray <appname> from commandline 
to do this.

Furhermore, the KWin maintainer is working on this feature to be in KDE 
natively, which means KDE 4 will hopefully have much better support for this 
(like a button in the titlebar of the window to dock it in the systemtray).

Hope that helps,
