The taskbar item flashes when the program sets the URGENT hint on it's window.
So getting the flashing is really the program's responsibility, not the
taskbar's. It just responds to a request for notifying the user that the
program wants attention. (also, GAIM has a plugin for setting the URGENT hint)

We don't know who it was that discovered water, but we're pretty sure
that it wasn't a fish.
