Fluid makes menubar "apps" out of webpages etc, but i just want to stick a "launch" icon in the menu bar for, let's say screen sharing. Can it be done? is there an app out there that does that?

I want the opposite of of what DockDodger does, which hides icons from the dock when running. I want "MenuPutter".

If the app itself isn't programmed to provide a menu bar icon, then no, you can't really do that. You would have to program that yourself, I guess.

The only alternative that comes to mind is aLaunch, which allows you to put various applications into your menu bar for easy access:

Huh. Good spot. You should file a bug report :P – slhck Jul 13 '12 at 19:07

I have used in the past XMenu (freeware) by devonTechnologies. (Scroll down to the bottom left of the page).
I'm not sure if 'aLaunch' is limited to only one menu or not, but
XMenu can have a up to 6 menus in the menubar.
