a bit - but you are picking a wrong time to nit-pick :)

systray is not in the picture. there is a TODO list :)

sure - but that then forever makes things a moving target and we WONT release
- ever. i am trying to rein IN the "please add feature X for me" stuff - so we
DO finish something as opposed to just endlessly slog on such a request list.
it's just a management thing - tyr and keep the entropy in feature adds low so
we follow a definite list and finish it off. we can worry about such nitty
details near the end of the "major work" :)
