Taskbar

The iconbox and taskbar are currently being subsumed inside this new panel framework, and will become instances of the panel, increasing flexibility, and reducing the effort to maintain the bunch.

Whew, I certainly detest the taskbar; I think its ugly and it takes up screen space. I can't wait to be able to disable it completely.

Yeah, it's great that the taskbar and Lil' Star get merged with the panel. I never liked the fact that they were seperate programs. The old panel and taskbar have too much overlapping functionality.
