Purpose of blink: Notify the user that noatun is playing.
Isn't the user aware of that? And if he is unsure, he can look at the tray
and find a static, noblinking icon telling him that noatun is playing.
When it blinks it steals focus, no argue about that. Evolution has made sure
our eyes pays attention to anything abrupt or new in our viewing field. After
typing all day long it is rather wearing.
I see no argument what good it does, except looking cool perhaps. (feel free
to motivate). If we change it what will the users complaing about? - "Hey!
Why did you remove the blinking! I liked/needed it because ..."
(sorry, if I sound harsh)
