I would just like appicons to respect EWMH struts in their placement. Any
time I run a GNUstep app under KDE, the appicons end up underneath the KDE
panel, and I have to drag them out of there. Besides that, the icons pile up
on top of each other instead of being arranged in a row (which IIRC is how
they arrange themselves under WindowMaker).

On a related note, app menus also seem to start out positioned under KDE's
toplevel menu bar, which gives me no way to move them. So it'd be nice if
those also respected EWMH struts.
