Not sure if just a little "flash" animation is good enough to catch 
someone's attention, honestly. But I'm willing to try the simplest 
solution first. I've asked Darrin to prototype a couple of animations 
that we might be able to hook up and try :) I know Jaws might have 
played around with "shine" effects during a work week?

Let's try playing with some prototypes before I file a real bug. I'll 
keep people posted on what we come up with.
