to put it's windows around these ... for example to avoid icons and stuff
(like other docks) if told .... this is another reason why it should be  a
hint to the app from the WM ... the WM can decide that it doesn't care about
the icons for such things ... it can also have it's docks or some areas it
doesn't want touched ...

basically it should be the WM telling the panel what areas are free for it to
use ... for example in kde the panel is override redirect ... so they already
have some support for this ... there has to be a hint ... then gnome panel
could be used along with kde panel without any of them eating the other's
