The animation is possible in skins too. People are just too lazy to put
effort into it :)
But I agree, the animation is really useful and I don't want to see it
gone too.

I've not seen it yet, and if it's lacking info I can't understand it.
Didn't JdGordon commit a number of recscreen related tags to have that

information on the screen (that fit the users need) too.
