Application launch notification

One major drawback I've noticed with most window
managers is that when you launch an application,
especially one like mozilla or OpenOffice, the only
way to know that the program is actually starting is
to open up a terminal and type ps -a. The krellm2
monitor helps a bit but it would be nice if (similar
to sluggish KDE) the taskbar shows some form of
notification. Or maybe have the mouse pointer change.
Just something. 

I'm just a user trying to help.
