This is what I had in mind. I wanted to create an applet that mimics the
mac osx panel where the window menus are dynamicaly displayed on the
panel. Just like KDE does it. But I suppose it's a feature that GNOME
should introduce natively, not an external program.
I saw one screenshot with something like this, but never got a response
where it comes from.
