[feature request] awn bar hide/unhide animations

Bug Description

Awn is so pretty but the bar's hide/unhide animation looks goofy. Plus, it takes frustratingly long for it to unhide. At some point, it would be great if there could be hide/unhide animations for the bar just like there are various animations for the icons. Maybe the bar could jump up from below the screen; maybe with the 3D look it could unroll like a carpet, it could inflate into place like a balloon, appear in place in a puff of smoke, unfold like a piece of paper, and so on. The possibilities are endless. I know this is a silly eye-candy request that would require a lot of work, and I don't mean to suggest that work be detracted from more serious features like multiple users, etc. Just wanted to get the idea out there in case no one else has thought about it yet. At the very least, it'd be nice if there was an option in awn manager that let you control how fast the bar hides/unhides.

Thanks for all your great work!
