Well I don't want to claim I'm smarter than Elijah (especially since, as
the one who wrote most of the code, his expertise in this matter now
exceeds my own), but the basic reason for DEMANDS_ATTENTION was that the
semantics were actually somewhat different than Urgent, plus its allowed
to be set by the WM, and perhaps more importantly , which is required
for this use of it.

The lack of Urgent support in GNOME is really more of an oversight and
we really should get around to supporting it.  Honestly it should
probably just be a if (DEMANDS_ATTENTION or Urgent) then do something
attention-grabbing but not focus-grabbing.

The relevent bug is here:

I think at this point we can probably move the part of the discussion
involving the GNOME implemention to the comments on that bug, since
we're way offtopic now.
