the 'old' docker ist mainly used for windowmaker and not GNOME2 or KDE3. 
Beside that it's working very well even it wasn't updated for decades.
Nevertheless I don't care what package name the 'old' docker have, so 
feel free to rename it to 'docker-tray' or something similar. But I 
don't see the case for moving or dropping it out of extra.

But how can we rename it without much hassle for the user? A provide 
line in the PKGBUILD isn't possible if the 'new' docker is called docker 
or am I wrong on this?
