The only real benifit is having this on the left side of the dock seperator where apps belong, but its still not quite what we need. We need a 2D dock, like a grid rather than a strip. So I can click on an icon in the apps side & a new "dock" opos up vertically from that icon listing apps in that category. As it is my dock is OK but thats only because I have a 17 inch PB screen & VERY small dock icons.

Perhaps a bit redundant, but definately a great less tedious than putting together folders full of aliases. As for command-tabbing, try activating the system hotkeys. Control-F3 pull up the dock and allows you to navigate through it: allowing you to skip dockLauncher. I think it's convenient, useful, and easy to use. Maybe adding hierarchical functionality would be nice.

This is sort of redundant, given that you can do the exact same thing with a folder full of folders full of aliases, if you follow. In fact, it looks exactly the same to have a folder, call it "Dock Launch" or whatever. Fill it full of folders called "Applications" "Documents" etc and then fill those folders with aliases to the appropriate items. A benefit of doing it this way is that all of the aliases to folders will have hierchical menus coming off them, which the folders in Dock Launcher do not. And when you're CMD-Tabbing through open apps, you don't get have to skip through DockLauncher.

It's a good idea, but it adds no functionality to the Dock.

On the plus side, it prompted me to make such a folder and organize it as outlined above.

So, add some functionality not found in the Dock, and maybe you'll have something.
