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...
