add a running task as a launcher

Bug #267511 reported by hazylazysusan
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released

Bug Description

Just like the option that appears to "Change Icon" when right clicking on a task or launcher, there should be an option to "keep the running task" as a launcher. This saves you from having to add launcher manually under Avant options and it seems a lot simpler.

While useful if it worked well chances are that any implementation would be less effective than our current method of using a desktop file.

The basic reason being the difficulty of determining the launching desktop file (if there is one and/or if one exists) from a window. So.. yes it can be done but the results tend to be suboptimal or at least require additional configuration after the fact.
