That got me thinking...

This is a remote possibility, and I don't even have a taskbar here to try 
it on (I use alt-tab, window list with a desktop-middle-click, etc, not a 
taskbar), but I've seen some hints in what I've read...  Tho I'm not even 
sure if kde does it this way or only unity/gnome, so...

Does kde's taskbar have the ability to "pin" an app as a launcher, such 
that if it's running a click will bring it forward as usual, but if not, 
a click will start it?  If so, maybe a pinned app would keep its icon, 
which one would hope is configurable?  Could be worth a try, anyway.
