How to always show program tray icons in Windows by *default*

In .NET Rocks podcast, not long time ago, Kate Gregory from Microsoft was saying that it is impossible.

She said something like: "If user wants it (tray icon) he/she will put it there". Reason for this is to prevent mess in the tray area.
