Bug Description

I was looking at the documentation to develop a python quicklist here:
https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Unity/LauncherAPI

I am trying to determine if there is a signal to get when the user right-clicks the desktop and the quicklist is shown so that I can dynamically build the quicklist lazily (when shown) instead of having to update it on a background thread.

It appears that no signals are fired when the quicklist is shown. Is there one that I am missing? Otherwise I will turn this into a bug (request for enhancement) so that it can be done.

Yeah, no signal is fired when the quicklist is opened. Implementing something like this would be very helpful.
