Actually it looks like what is needed is the ability to minimize emacs frames
to the system tray. A web search found many applications that claim to be
able to minimize *any* window to the system tray. I tried one such and it
completely ignored emacs frames, so obviously there is something missing that I
will try to find out. But has anybody been successful with such "window
managers" on w32?
