Is it possible to have a Frame go on top of the windows taskbar? I'm making a game that I want to be fullscreen regardless of the user's settings, and i have the resolution, but i can't count on a user to auto-hide their taskbar. Isn't there some kind of System.makeJoesLifeEasier()?

I've heard it takes forever to grow a woman from the ground

I must be on stupid pills or something, because that's the second straight moron question I've posted. Please forgive me. Ignore.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
