>From hig/feedback.html:
        * they (= highly responsive apps ;-) provide enough feedback for
          users to understand what they are doing an organize feedback
          according to users abilities to comprehend and react to it
        * they let users know when processing is in progress
        * they let user know or estimate how long lengthy operations
