Make Gaim tray icon replace Buddy List window

Okay, I love the Gaim tray icon, but I dislike having the buddy list window sucking up space on my taskbar. Originally, I just changed some configuration files for IceWM, here's what I added to winoptions:

gaim.allWorkspaces: 1
gaim.ignoreWinList: 1
gaim.ignoreTaskBar: 1
gaim.ignoreQuickSwitch: 1
This is EXACTLY what I want for the Buddy List window, unfortunately, it also affects actual conversations which I'd like to be isolated to one Workspace, appear in the WinList and be in the taskbar. So my question, is there a way to apply these settings ONLY to the Buddy List window for Gaim, or can I make the tray icon somehow replace the buddy list (in the task bar, I'd still like to see the buddy list window).

EDIT: Also, while I'm at it, is there anyway to make the tray icons have no background color (ie transparent)?
