Which Windows OS?
I assume Windows 7 or later?

It should be possible and possibly not too hard to implement:
In particular: "A single executable file with a UI with multiple modes
that appear to the user as separate applications should assign different
AppUserModelIDs to each mode. For instance, a portion of an application
that users see as an independent experience that they can pin to and
launch from the taskbar separately from the rest of the application
should have its own AppUserModelID, separate from the main experience."

On X11 we do have the concept of a "group leader" and we usually also
have access to the PID of the window, so we should be able to separate them.
Please file a ticket and I'll try to implement it.
