Agree, this would be a very good thing, IMHO.  I'm writing an
application suite, part of which uses the notify/tray icon.  And getting
libegg is rather a pain.

I don't suppose there is any hope of mapping between the GNOME notify
area and the Win32 tray?  So one doesn't have to maintain two versions 
(I haven't looked into the Win32 tray yet since the GNOME version comes
first, so I don't know how radically different it is).
