It's just a matter of passing libegg (from GNOME CVS) through the Gtk#
code generator. It has an API for tray icons. Unfortunately libegg is
experimental and isn't distributed as a shared library, so you will have
to ship it along with your program.

There's been discussion about making a CVS module for third party
components that will ship with Gtk# to provide a more complete platform
for applications development. The libegg tray library seems like a good
candidate for inclusion.
