Not really interested in chewing up more screen realestate by adding more 
taskbars all over the place just to have access to this app, which I don't use 
all that much.

I can add some information though.  I have tried both "alltray", and "kdock", 
both of which are suppose to take any app and push it to the system tray.  
Neither one works with the new kde tray.  They both make the app window 
dissapear though.

If it ain't broke tweek it
