The easiest approach is to have a separate "emacs-systray" application
that (i) starts Emacs in daemon mode and (ii) adds a systray icon which
runs emacsclient when clicked.  "Minimizing to systray" is just the same
as closing the frame, which is already handled properly in daemon mode.

(Same approach works for a Gnome or KDE applet.)
