Dock-a-bye is an applescript to kill (quit) the dock without it respawning (coming back).
Unsupported means that I provide no guarantees that Dock-A-Bye will succeed in killing the dock: on most of the newer systems, Dock-A-Bye isn't fast enough to quit the Dock before the Dock restarts itself again, and after about 20 seconds Dock-A-Bye admits defeat and quits. If it does succeed with quiting the dock on your system, then feel free to continue using Dock-A-Bye! In any event, it is safe and will not harm your system. (The reason for the screwy behavior in OS 10.2 and later is due to the Dock quiting and restarting. Click here for a more technical description.) I will not provide technical support.
