[Mono-winforms-list] NotifyIcon issue...

Just answering of the top of my head, I haven't looked at NotifyIcon yet:

We could move the system-dependent parts either into the driver, or into the
theme code. If X11 finally has a common method for a tray the driver makes
sense (last time I looked gnome and kde used different ways of getting into
the tray, is that still the case?). Otherwise, we could move it into the
Theme and perform the platform specific ways there.

Any comments?

>Myself and Ravindra Kumar were discussing this control last nite as I was
implementing it, and we ran into a small problem; even though I can switch
my version out with .NET's System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon fine, and
programatically the class interface/signature is fine, given that a system
tray is OS/platform dependent and really out of the scope of
GDI+/System.Drawing, we decided that we were at a loss on how to manually
draw said component. Ideas?
