    33I can't find any decent documentation anywhere. Just this: [https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/StatusNotifierItem/ StatusNotifierItem] which is quite low level and not very useful. Funny quote: ''..tough more model-view oriented, giving more freedom to the workspace how to graphically represent the items coherent to its visual style language'' - which actually means less freedom for the applications. Taking freedom away from developers but making it sound like this is way better for everyone. Free software, yay..

    5 According to [https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing-gtk/issues/73]: ''It's just that Unity rebranded a limited subset of what KDE's StatusNotifiers as AppIndicators and just ignores all other features (Passive/Active states, icon activation/left-clicking, application titles, tooltips, ...).''

    66So we already have some support for this stuff, just using a more limited Ubuntu variant of the API.
    77The more complete API variant adds left-click support and that certainly would help: we can then forward it and almost pretend to have a fully functional system tray. The problem is that Ubuntu won't support this... so not much of an improvement on that platform, plus the extra pain of having to detect what is and what isn't supported at runtime, and use something else as fallback.
