It used to be a lot easier in KDE2. One just needed the "Dock
Application Bar" extension to be active, and starting any WindowMaker
applet would automatically dock it without creating an extra entry in
the taskbar.

The KDE3 way is far more complicated and doesn't work cleanly. For e.g.,
$ kstart --skiptaskbar wmCalClock
gives me wmCalClock docked correctly, but it also produces an extra
empty placeholder window in the dock app. bar.

Am I missing an option here?
