Is there an app that can make another app run solely from the menubar? [closed]

I've got an app that I need to leave running, but I never do anything with - it's essentially a server. I'd like some way to either hide it completely from the dock and (if possible) put it up in the menubar (top-right) out of the way of CMD+Tab.

"You can use Spirited Away - it can automatically hide inactive applications or you can hide them yourself whenever you wish:

You can also hide it with AppleScript:

tell application ""System Events""
set visible of process ""Your App Name Here"" to false
end tell

...or run it as a daemon."

Dock Dodger, and one other I can't remember at the moment. I like Dock Dodger better, though.
