To be honest, I like the idea of static icon with 'clock' dots
appearing as an alternative. Now I do like the current pulsing (there
to prevent impatient random clicking on other UI slowing things down
even more), but if no one can code the pulsing lean enough, given the
XO hardware, then we perhaps need to move on.
