My opinion is to keep in different packages the tasklist, the
launcher and the system-tray.

They are different applications with different objetives, and they are
three different "use cases" for the user. Hence they should be different

Furthermore, it will be easy for developers to maintain three small
applications than maintain a giant one. It is better to "live" without
tasklist but with launcher and systray, than to live without any of
the three.
