There's a bit in the WM_HINTS property called `Urgency' that's used
for this - if a window has the bit set the wm is recommended to go to
extra lengths to make the user aware it.

Sawfish has support for reading this hint, but to my knowledge no
themes use it (they need to call window-urgent-p and, if it returns
true, do something special to their window decorations)

It would definitely make sense for the tasklist to read this bit as

However, I don't know if (m)any applications actually set this bit..
