Re: Suggestion: dockable taskbar items

Hello Alex,

at first suggestions are always welcome, so please go ahead!
One suggestion though, best is you'll get a account and
submit your ideas there. Submit dem one-by-one. Then developers that maintain
the respective package can get back to you and comment on the idea.
The good thing is that you will also get a mail when it is done etc.
