IconBox& Panel Manager/Customize

> _/Panel Manager / items / Launcher_
> In a Program Launcher Make it easy to add items :
> -query Appfinder to add an apllication
> -qwerty Filemanager to choose a file or a folder
> - query the "Add items to panel" to add screenshots-notes or others OR
> Drag &Drop from another panel (implying further possibility to have
> multiple drawers like "Program Launcher" icons (that could also be
> changed by drag&drop in the preferences)

> /Panel Manager / items / IconBox
> _For ease of navigation-walking infront-openning windows :
> -add a configuralble hotkey to move the "mouse-keyboard" focus to the
> iconbox panel > Left-Right Keys move the upcomming app to front Up&Down
> Reduce Or Magnify size : *i.e. alt-tab is the hotkey , once pressed >
> Left brings the left window to top , double it or tripple > move to that

Hm... the list reads interesting. Was this implemented somewhere or is this 
a wishlist?
