In this case, it would make aMSN more beautiful, I think this could be implemented.
btw, should the menu opened with rightclick on trayicon also be "iconised"? For me, yes, if, once again, it doesn't take too much memory.
Perhaps could we implement this by using skins? So that each user can choose between "No icons" "Skin 1" "Skin 2" ... and not "Icons " "No icons", which is a bit short. And I don't know if, if we use these skins, they should be included in the skins we already use now, or should be different skins (perhaps so call them "themes", not to confuse names [so that "themes" would change aMSN menus, and "skins" would change aMSN CL])
I don't know if this was very clear, tell me if not
