Was wondering if there's a way to place a widget or anything at all on a higher plane than the app icons on the springboard. Sort of like how in HTML/CSS I could set a higher z-index and make sure other stuff was behind/below it.
I have an idea but I'd like to be able to put a widget or just an interface element on the same "plane" as the dock, so that scrolling app icons go behind/below it. If it helps, think of it like I want to build a frame around my springboard, but I want it to stay on top all the time.
I doubt that's possible... just wanted to ask.
My other "I doubt it" question is whether you can launch an app via a link inside a widget.

You can launch an app from a widget. You need the tweak iWidget Tapper to make that happen, but it is very easy to use.
I'm not sure that I fully understand your first question. If you we're to place an iWidget on top of icons, then they can't be used underneath.
It sounds almost like you just want a special wallpaper. Otherwise you may be able to do it with perpageHTML+.
I hope this helps you.

If the icons scroll underneath the element, that's fine if they can't be used. As long as I can click them when they're visible.
Perhaps a better example could be used with this Infiniboard+ screenshot: http://modmyi.com/info/perpagehtml2.php
What I'm after is scrolling but without a widget on top moving or being covered by the app icons. So in this example if I scrolled, the icons would pass behind the little game in the middle, which would remain in place.
(A more practical example might be having something in a left-hand column that remains stationary while icons scroll side to side... same fundamental idea code-wise though.)
