s/like in Windows/like in GNOME/

Status dock thing has been there since like 1.2.  Just no one is using it.
And really that was the idea of the status dock, if an application wants to
put something on the panel, putting up an applet is annoying and obnoxious,
especially if it is temporary since you might close the app soon.
