Comment on "Core Animation Isn't Just for Animation"

I've taken your advice on this post, however probably a little unconventionally. I'm writing a small utility that is a graphical wrapper for class-dump, and it sits in the menu bar as an NSStatusItem most of the time, yet it isn't entirely obvious the first time where the application is. So, the conclusion I've come to with the help of some friends, is that a quick splash screen would help to explain where the application is. Using MAAttachedWindow for this window, I can bring out the splash screen for a second or two, and then have it animate fancily right into the status item itself, perhaps even using a "genie effect".
