Agreed. Using the notification area as some kind of weird alternative
to minimization seems pretty wacky.

We *can* trivially add the ability for the minimized app buttons in
the window list to support things like flashing, or tooltips, or
whatever. So if "rich minimized state" is wanted, we can do that
without adding a new kind of minimization.
