I re-read what FOREGROUNDFLASHCOUNT: Set/Gets the number of times the Set Foreground Window flashes the taskbar button when rejecting a foreground switch request.
Seems like this system attribute is for a shortlived number of flashes, not really appropriate. I do think it best to be able to set our own count.
