Modifying ayttm to have a tray icon and behave a little
bit more like the native messenger apps would be
convenient. gaim has one (though I don't like the
behaviour of this too much).

I jsut find it inconvenient to have ayttm occupying
space on the task bar when there are no chats open or
anything.

    I second this. I think it would be very convenient, and is
    actually one of the factors that made me almost choose
    another IM client to use on Windows at work (task bar gets
    cluttered; I still went with ayttm, though ;)

    As a workaround for those waiting/hoping for this feature,
    I'm currently running Virtual Dimension to give me virtual
    desktops on Windows, and it also gives you a right-click
    menu on each window's border that lets you set properties
    for that window (like which virtual desktop to put it on,
    etc.). One of those properties is "minimize to tray". Once
    you enable this option, as long as Virtual Dimension is
    running your app will minimize to the tray and will not take
    up any taskbar real estate. Nice. (I'd still like this to
    be an Ayttm feature.)

    The URL for Virtual Dimension:

    Ayttm now has a tray icon :)
    You can pull out and build the latest code from cvs to get it.
