Well...I didn't have dock-apps in mind, but applications in general.
This could be gaim, xmms, system-info tools, whatever - maybe even
that dock-window (it would not be resized when adding or removing
columns then). It will not be useful to anyone, but some users may
benefit without having to introduce any special handling or apps.
One might use a whatever-wm-dockbar for the dock-apps (if he really
wants to) without a lot of work on the wmii side.
