Well, as I said in my other mail, it's a bit annoying when you have 10
icons on your panel, and they all react differently to being clicked. 
I'm not familiar with GSwitchIt, but if it does as I understand, would
perhaps popping up a window with a list of choices be better?  Or overly

Also, is it HIG compliant to have a window close on selecting a button? 
I.e., click the icon (be it applet or status dock), have a window with
the flags pop up, click a flag, have the option take effect and the
window close?
