Idea: override window manager "activate" and
"emergency" type EWMH flags and instead signal it
visually in the fbpanel taskbar by changing the button
background or by flashing the icon (changing the button
text is no good, since some people may choose to only
display icons).

This would offer an alternative to the sometimes
annoying habit that some applications have of popping
up and interrupting your work.

With such a feature, you could iconify windows and when
they wish to activate they would just quitely blink in
the taskbar instead of invading your current workspace.
