    I think it would be a great idea for someone to build an app which could work as an external touchpad. This would act like the built-in touchpad, not a screenshare device. You could have the dock transferred to it so it was offscreen, and have the desktop wallpaper on it. But the windows would not appear on it. You could also have controls for iTunes and Front Row built into it.

    This image shows what I am talking about. Just look at the touchpad.
    If anyone with good programming skills can make this, I have no idea how to do it.
    thanks for trying.

    Jaadu VNC has a made that lets you disable the screen so it just acts as a touchpad which works well. Air mouse has the same but Jaadu has some remote control functions aswell.
    As for the dock...that would probably require another program for the pc to send the dock information to the iPod.
