Your idea is that applications are still running when i close their window?
And that they will appear in an app selector? Well, the idea is not bad, but
the tray does this already. When i close my app i can reopen it by clicking
the tray icon. My critic point is: Instead of developing an app selector, we
should drop the idea of the tray as a notification area and improve it
