Not sure where I saw them, but there were some Dot comments recently asking 
for arbitrary groupings of windows (by task), which would be nice, example:  
group a bunch of different apps' windows related to hacking kmail, and create 
a separate group for a simultaneous session for hacking kdevelop.  

At the moment I use virtual desktops for grouping, but they are inflexible.  
I'd prefer it if this was stored in kwin and covered by session management.

Oh, and here's a couple more semi taskbar related ideas: if an apps' own tab 
is dragged from the tabbar to the taskbar, plasma should tell the app to 
detach that tab into its own window.  If a window is dragged onto the pager 
(by titlebar or alt-drag) it should move to that window.
