This change is intentional, for two reasons: it was mostly a
workaround for poor task switching, which has been fixed in GNOME 3,
or needs to be fixed harder if it's still a problem; and I think it
makes even less sense for the persistent representation of the
application itself (rather than just some of its state) to be a
message tray icon as opposed to a status icon.

The status icon plugin has been removed, because between the GNOME 3
message tray and Ubuntu's sound menu I don't think it has a place on
current desktops and I'm not interested in maintaining it, but if
someone wanted to revive it (removing the notification code,
obviously) and continue to look after it, I'd probably be okay with
