Hmm, I would prefer the window list to look more like the one in 
xfdesktop (with icons) perhaps with right-click menu on the windowlist 
menu (I don't know how hard that is). The icon should have the size of 
the default panel icons and it would be very cool if it could show the 
icon of the active window ;)

I really would like something like this for the panel. I not convinced 
the window list and the task list plugins should be the same, but we'll see.
