AFAIK this is already working. If you call g_set_application_name()
(as gnome-terminal in CVS does) you will get that name as the name of
your tasklist group. The window list supports this since GNOME 2.0,
and I added g_set_application_name() in 2.2 precisely so apps could
easily fix their window list group title.
You may have to call g_set_application_name() prior to gtk_init() for
it to work.
