    Not to the dock -- I was envisioning something that would shrink a window
    (or set of windows!) to small icons in their original positions (or as close
    to "original" position as a smaller box can be), sort of like Windowshade.
    But not the window bar (although that might be an alternative).

    When the mouse pointer passed over that small icon, it would automatically
    expand (again, sort of like windowshade, but without needing a mouse click).

    When the mouse pointer left that expanded window, the window would shrink
    to an icon again. IOW, mouse-on-icon->expand, mouse-off-window->shrink.

    Now, if there were way to apply this behavior to ALL windows of a particular
    APPLICATION, that'd be much better. Basically what this is is just a wrinkle
    on the "hide X/show X/hide others" feature of the Mac desktop.

    I seem to remember a shareware app that was like this that had a name that
    had something to do with sailing or something (if that helps at all).

    Or you can circle through all opened windows in the frontmost app using
    Command + ~ (or Command + Shift + ~ ). Windows that are minimized will be
    maximized.
