#15523: No visible notification of new messages

 Guess this is more of a feature request than a bug report, but since I
 began using Pidgin, people message me all the time, but with the window
 minimized or behind other windows, I never receive any notification of new
 incoming messages.  Even with the flash option on, if I have several
 buddies open in tabs, there is no obvious notification that I have a new
 message.  As a former Trillian user, I was very used to new messages
 causing the Windows taskbar icon to flash.  It would be REALLY helpful for
 Pidgin to implement something like this, either/or update the taskbar with
 the number of new messages.  The 'play a sound' on incoming messages
 option is not viable for use in a work environment.  I need a visible
 indicator.  By the way, your captcha is a little TOO good.  I've tried TEN
 times, and it keeps failing me.  I'm HUMAN, and I can't make out what the
 frell it's saying.
