workbench usability: need an obvious "work in progress" icon.
Created originally on Bitbucket by jasons (jason s)
currently, when using workbench and performing actions (example, "pull incomming changes") the only indicator of work is to look in the lower left corner of the window for status, which may not be animated all the time.
also errors are only reported as text via the output log, which requires users to manually (visually) parse the output log and interpret errors.
proposed solution: a new "status" icon, next to the "refresh current repository" (circular arrows) icon in the upper left.
this status icon should show 3 states:
- animated "work in progress"
- static "last actions completed successfully!"
- static "last actions failed!"
