  No way to change Tasque Preferences without a systray icon

Status in “tasque” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: tasque

  When you first run Tasque, it asks you about your personal
  preferences. Once you close this dialogue, you can access it again by
  right-clicking Tasque systray icon and choosing preferences.

  In Natty, however, Tasque menu has only a File button (which contains
  only a Close button inside), and it has no systray icon (because it is
  blacklisted), nor it relies on an indicator. There isn't a specific
  command to access that dialogue through command line either.
  Therefore, it is impossible to change its preferences in Natty; the
  only way to do that is by whitelisting the application using dconf-
  editor, which was what I did. This is not an optimal solution, IMO.

  Solutions (both short and long term):
  1) Provide a button in the menu to access preferences dialogue
  2) Make it appindicator-compliant (putting it into its own menu or, perhaps, date-time indicator)
  3) Use Unity Launcher API to make preferences available on right-click (not ideal, I guess)
  3) Whitelisting it for Natty
