We are reaching a hot phase of Whonix and sdwdate development. An
important milestone of usability.

In case you don't know yet, to get rid of popping up progress bars,
passive notifications and windows for network time synchronization, the
whole thing will be replaced by a tray icon.

A rewrite is in progress. sdwdate will be rewritten in python and the
timesync gui will be replaced by a tray icon, sdwdate-tray. Done by

The proposal, about the user interface and interaction between sdwdate
and sdwdate-tray.

Comments on usability and interaction welcome.

>From the Qubes side, probably nothing is required at this point, since
tray icons work fine without any extra settings.
