well, the iconbox has a fixed icon size (a lot larger than i want), and
i can't attach a pager and a systray to it. good enough? ^_~
actually, if the taskbar were made such that it would grow/shrink
dynamically, you could change its orientation, and tell it to optionally
only display minimised apps, it would _be_ the iconbox. i think adding
these features and ditching the iconbox entirely would be a good idea.
esp since everyone seems to think the iconbox codebase is so horrendous...
