Of course, I would really really like this to be implemented in the next  
release. So bring on the suggestions. Nick proposed what should be done at  
http://foo-projects.org/pipermail/xfce4-dev/2006-December/021974.html ,  
basically the 'new' tasklist without any systemtray or launcher  

I think the main issue is with the merging of the systray and launcher.  
There are people who like the tasklist+systray but minus the launcher,  
others who like the tasklist+launcher but minus the systray, people (like  
me) who like all 3 together, and those who just like the grouping,  
drag&drop idea of the tasklist only.

So to keep everyone happy, lets have options in 'preferences' where you  
are able to 'Enable/Disable System Tray integration' and 'Enable/Disable  
Launcher integration' . This is what I like the 'final' applet to consist  

But you gotta start somewhere, so if the developers feel that WITHOUT the  
launcher+systray integration will be a good start, then so be it. But  
leave the application code 'open' for possible future implementation of  
the launcher+systray integration.

Sounds good? Tell me what else is there to consider.
