This significantly reduces CPU stress when a tray icon blinks. Also since we reduced the animation times the pulse became super quick and annoying. It is now hardcoded to 2000s which is a little bit slower than the original one (250 times 6) but it's much more comfortable that way imho. Also turning off "smooth" doesn't really help Animators anyway, and cleanup, alwaysRunToEnd should suffice.

Pulsing tray icon no longer causes 10%+ CPU consumption of plasmashell
