It's close enough to complete to be of general utility to me :)

I've got a patch written but am waiting for what seems like an eternity to
get the thing compiled. If only cygwin's make supported distributed
compiling; I've only got 250+ computers at my disposal :)

The patch took all of 10 minutes once I figured out where it was supposed to
go.  Of course, if I'm wrong about where it goes it will take me a bit
longer to figure out where to hack it in, but I'm reasonably confident that
the basic code is correct...  Basically, it creates a tray icon and then
hides the root window.  When you right-click on the icon, it should pop up a
menu with one item on it, "Exit."

Anyways, once it finishes compiling I'll test it out and report my results;
if I've got it right, I'll post some code.
