What if we make the launcher become the desktop?
To place an icon in it, we open the app, then pin it in the desktop.
The icons would be able to occupy the whole screen.
We would have: close, minimize, maximize, icon to show desktop, icon
to show menu, window title, app name, indicators.

This is how it looks in Ubuntu: http://ubuntuone.com/7NFfFgZJl4klWnnickXW8L

Can you explain why we should have another button and add them to the
desktop instead?

I wanted to have an autohide launcher that expands to all the screen,
so we would have space to put folders, not only applications there,
but this is too radical and we're going fine the way we're going, so
you can just forget it now and keep this message to the future
