I don't remember if posted this or not, so here's my dock idea:

Cory, if you look in the screen shot above you will see and icon third from
the left, it should be "indicator applet" or similar.  This has a function
network applet with it.  Additionally the "indicator applet" has a check box
that will break all the three small icons into three separate icons.  I
liked the three smaller ones in one launcher myself.

As far as the dependencies; I think docky and cairo has something like six
or eight dependencies each while AWN had something like twenty-something.
So I agree (and I thought I posted this somewhere already, maybe only in
IRC) AWN seems really, really heavy.

Perhaps we could talk to the docky developers and see if they accommodate
these requirements?
