Hey Botsie,

That's good news :)

My feeling is that the taskbar should not be part of the panel. It would
not look good at all.

I've been thinking of a tasklist ala BeOS, where running apps are shown
in a vertical taskbar located in a corner of the screen.

That should be configurable anyway.

You used net hisnts for that, not gnome hints, didn't you ? I still need
to write the underlaying lib...
