I'd love to run OmniDazzle without having it present on the Dock.

Is this possible at all?

Try the following, which I've used for other utilities which don't really require a place in the Dock (eg. HardwareGrowler)...
  • Add OmniDazzle to your account's login items using the Accounts prefpane, and mark it to start hidden.
  • Add a 'LSUIElement' key to its 'Info.plist' file as follows, substituting for the parent directory of the application in if you installed it anywhere other than /Applications:

    Code:
    defaults write /Applications/OmniDazzle.app/Contents/Info LSUIElement true
  • Restart OmniDazzle and close its config window (or hide the app).

To show the icon in the dock again...
  • Remove the key:

    Code:
    defaults delete /Applications/OmniDazzle.app/Contents/Info LSUIElement
  • Quit OmniDazzle from its status bar icon, and restart it.

HTH,
Steve
