Those sexy tabs on the edge of the screen are easy to do. We can extend window managers to support a new NET_WM hint: if an app creates a window tagged with the NET_WM_WINDOW_IS_TAB property, then the window manager presents that window as a tab!

(We can steal the code to draw sexy tabs from Online Desktop's big-board.)

This way, we automatically have a way for applications to extend the tabbed utility windows in the desktop.
