I wouldn't mind seeing a 3rd party systray gadget. Ideally, you could
have a 'gnome OR kde' option that emulates the behavior of gnome/kde
systrays. I know kde does some sort of hackery to get transparent
_seeming_ icons. I haven't looked in depth, but it seems like it copies
the systray's bg pixmap and does pseudo-trans. (This may take borrowing
heavily from GPL'd code, thus GPL'ing the gadget, but would be worth it
imo). Gnome may do something similar, although it seems more like the
icons just set their bg color based on the current gtk theme. 

Anyway, some way of getting the systray icons of apps people use most
decently integrated into an e systray should be possible. (Maybe not
clean or nice, but possible) :)
