I see your point. I agree implementing all animations on an app by app
basis is not the right way to go. I don't like how this is done however.
Unfortunately I do not have a better idea for the time being.

Well, if you are looking for me, I will be in my widget workbench,
hammering a widget to fit my needs :/
