I guess I have to disagree here. Proper systray support is a VERY user-visible
element, as such Wine should do everything humanly possible to try to get it
included in a pretty well-working way before 0.9 ships.

But then I don't know what's involved here in getting this patch done in a good
way, I'm just stating that I think that it's really important.
(this stuff has been missing for far too long anyway - and I've been
unsuccessfully submitting some systray patches some time ago, too)

Some people would also say that it'd be a *really* lame 0.9 release
if Wine wasn't even able to properly dock a tiny icon within pre-existing
and properly working desktop mechanisms...
