"loading..." (busy/activity/progress indicator)
#19
i see that we have progress bars when buffering video now, great work!

my xbox is on a slow wireless network link, and all media is accessed from a samba share on a netbsd box. earlier i didn't know if
- the signal from the remote actually got through, or
- xbmc crashed, or
- the video actually pre-buffering, or
- the video file was corrupt

now, there's still one place where a progress bar / hour glass is needed. as my shares are on this slow network link, fetching large directories takes awhile. again, i don't know if the signal from the remote actually got through etc.

has anyone thought of implementing an hour glass when parsing networked directories? is it feasible? it could be as "easy" as:

instead of
select item --> fetch directory --> display directory
do
select item --> blinksomething() --> fetch directory --> display directory

.. but i guess it's usually far more involved programming a feature than describing it.
