I think I like this.
this goes well with our idea of merging the taskbar and the status notifier
item as well.
could still be a bit error prone, but i can't think of more automatic ways. it
could also be done on the other way around, by having a list of desktop file
paths as a property of the notifier item, but wouldn't be better I think...
