XFCE4: minimize applications to desktop AND remove from "task list"?

I like minimizing my applications to the desktop. The thing is I would like minimzed applications to be removed from the "taks list" on the top panel. The task list would only contain applications that aren't minimized so when you minimize an application they get removed and sent to the desktop.

This may not be a feature; I might submit it to the developers as an option you can enable.

if you are using XFCE:
right click desktop->desktop property it will open desktop preferences window(you can also access it from setup manager). click behavior tab, choose minimized application icons in desktop icons section.

if you are using FVWM:
it takes more trouble, be could be much fancy. I have a theme in my website. it not only minimized to desktop, the icon will be the window screen capture.

if you are using gnome or kde:
