Re: Suggestion: CDE style minimizing to desktop

I had a suggestion, but I am not sure if this is a correct place to post
it, so please let me know if it isn't. I think GNOME should integrate
the ability to minimize windows to a desktop icon as is the case with
CDE. I like GNOME a lot better than any other desktop environment,
except when it comes to managing lots of servers I use CDE solely
because of this feature. For those that haven't used CDE, by clicking a
button on a windows title bar's (located in the top right next to
maximize), CDE will minimize the window to a desktop icon. Then to
restore the window you just double-click the respective window's icon
from the desktop. This is very useful because it allows you to have tons
of programs open and easily accessible without occupying monitor space
like with the gnome-panel. In my case, I keep an ssh session open to
every server we have. When I am not using a particular server I just
minimize the terminal to an icon on the desktop and it is completely out
of the way. When I need to access any given system I just go to the
desktop and can very easily locate and open whichever server I need.

You mean like minimizing the window to the system tray? That would also work the way you described right?
