could you please include the application icon (either
hardcoded or as a link to an icon file) in the binary
so it will be shown in the taskbar?

thank you.

    AFAIK, it depends on your window manager (or the app that is
    handling the taskbar). Unlike Windows icons are not stored
    in executables. You need to look into your WM documenation
    on how to set app icons.

    I think there are some EWMH hints that will let you do this.
    If I can figure out how to load an icon ... this will be easy :)

    It shouldn't depend on the WM since there are various apps that show the application icon on any WM. Having an mrxvt icon on the taskbar would be really useful.
