i don't know if i am understanding you correctly: you want to start only
a part of opp without haveing a systray application running, right?
first of all you can disable the icons you don't want to have in opp so
there should be no need to strip opp down to what you wanne use. second
the initialization of the icons are mainly done in the StatusIcon object
of the opp code. if you want to add icons to an other environment than
systray, you may want to change this code. we are always happy to
receive patches to enhance opp. but may be the easyest was to achive
your goal is to find/write a systray application for illume.
