As if I didn't know already, thanks for calibrating what sort of 
person I'm dealing with.

Like I said, we run in very different circles. If Cat-in-the-Dock 
sells it for you, more power to you.

I don't see anything touted in those articles as benefits of the Dock 
weren't already available to the real Mac OS in less obtrusive ways.

This is an endorsement?!?

I'm not arguing that you shouldn't be able to be pummelled upside the 
head with the Doc /if you want to be/. I just don't like having 
perfectly useful, and IMNSHO better designed, tools taken away from 
me and replaced with something that I and a lot of others decidedly 

All that said, despite my very low esteem for the Dock, I'm willing 
to waste a significant amount of development time (that would be 
better spent on other aspects of Alpha) to accommodate the stupid 
thing (although if accommodating the Dock didn't involve pretty much 
the same steps needed to bring Alpha's crufty code into Display 
Manager compliance, you can bet I'd find better things to do).
