Example of message that you can react (if it's possible ) Federico Leoni :
Cairo-dock is not the lightest in the world for sure but is a good
Cairo-Dock can be light (to use only a few MB in RAM) if it's used without OpenGL backend and it depends of what's loaded (of course, if a lot of plugins are loaded, it'll consume more resources). Plank is just a launcher, without the possibility to configure it easily and it also needs a composite manager if they want to use a 3D view.
starting point and it can works without composite, even if badly i my
Plank was my second choice, is a good superlight solution but without
composite doesn't work well: themes doesn't not apply. And is just a
launcher,not a complete panel replacement as Cairo-dock.

What we need to do next:
And a composite manager is always needed if they want to use a 3D view with real transparency... There is no miracle (or they have to use a very basic 2D view or 'fake transparency' option)
find a good alternative for Cairo-Dock to avoid use of a composite manager to increase speed and save precious ram -- Edit by Fabounet: actually, Cairo-Dock is able to run without a compositor, by using "fake transparency", and uses very few RAM when running with the "cairo" backend instead of the OpenGL one.
