  Let's make sure we make this configurable. I have keepassx and basket running
in the tray and I do *not* want them included in alt+tab. I'll have to look at
kcontrol again, but we should be able to do something like:

kcontrol -> Desktop -> Window Behavior -> Navigation -> then add:

  [ ] Traverse windows in system tray

Is this sort of what you were thinking Darrell?

  This could be done on an app-specific basis. I think it would also work in
"rt-click titlebar -> Advanced -> then either in "Special window settings..." or
"Special application settings..." Both:

"Special window settings..."
"Special application settings..."

already have a Preference to "Skip Pager". We would just need to add a hook that
would do the opposite:

[ ] Include in pager when minimized to the system tray

The hook to 'skip when minimized to tray' already exists somewhere in the code,
all that needs to be done is to find it and then make it conditional on whether
the Window Behavior or Special setting is checked. Any idea which block of code
that would exist in? tdelibs?
