Yo...  I did a huge amount of hacking on it tonight, and I consider it
functionally-complete.  That is, it should handle all the stuff you'd
expect it to handle - window creation/destruction, workspace
creation/destruction, moving windows between workspaces, etc.

The features that are missing are:

* handling screen size changes (via xrandr)
* handling gtk theme/font changes
* handling windows that change their title while minimised
* tooltips for full names
* DnD to move the icons around
* runtime option to turn them off
* not placing icons where there are struts (not sure how to do this)

So, functionality-wise, feel free to file "real" bugs, because I expect
it to work properly now.  Also feel free to suggest other features,
though I of course reserve the right to not implement them.

I also need someone who has a xinerama setup with two (or more) monitors
with different resolutions to test.  I suspect that it won't work
properly and place some icons off the "screen" sometimes.
Unfortunately, fixing this will be hard =/.

And just to note this publically: Mortiz owes me a beer for implementing
this ^_^.
