Re: UI Roadmap: TaskView Intergration

I noticed, that I forgot to add some points. My Project targets two

Firstly the removal of the nautilus owned progress dialogues and the
integration within the TaskView system.

Secondly the display of the information provided by the TaskView system,
as far it makes sense, e.g an emblem attached to a file, which is
downloaded at the moment.

Yes, this was one initial idea for the project.

I think an emblem and semi-transparency is a good idea.
