Wait just a bit. The problem is that the notification area is a poor
replacement of the window list. Instead of big strips with an icon and
a title, it's just a tiny icon. And that icon even has arbitrary
behavior. The idea is to get rid of the notification area *and* to
reintroduce the removed features in the window list, application
indicator, or any other place where it is actually appropriate.
