Bug Description

I highly suggest to provide a "glass" mode for the Launcher Items. This is much more appealing. During an item launch, it flashes from transparent to item color, instead of item color to transparent. Much better..

In Unity-2D, one can get this "glass" mode by doing the following:

In file /usr/share/unity-2d/launcher/LauncherItem.qml

In section Image id "tileBackground":

-- add the line "opacity: 0"
-- in subsection "SequentialAnimation", change "0.0" to "1.0", and "1.0" to "0.0"

In section Image id "tileOutline":

-- change the line "opacity: 0" for "opacity: 1.0"
-- in subsection "SequentialAnimation", change "1.0" to "0.0", and "0.0" to "1.0"
