Idea for the Gnome taskbar

I tend to find that I have multiple windows open at any one time, and my taskbar gets cluttered up. It would be nice if windows which I had not recently looked at could be manually or automatically removed from the taskbar - perhaps stored in a single "more windows..." item, or accessible from the taskbar context menu.

Having a less cluttered taskbar would let me keep more applications open - I find that app startup time is a major waste of my time under Linux.
