Provide feedback while plug-in is loading

Such a minor request, however: I find that when I try and launch an XrmToolbox plug-in, sometimes I'm not sure if I clicked the right part of the menu (so I click again, and maybe again...!). It would be helpful if there was some feedback while a plug-in is loading (a banner; a hourglass cursor; a change in colour for the menu.. etc). Sometimes the UI looks unresponsive while we await the plugin.

I think there might also be an issue with the call that checks for a newer version of the toolbox / Rating of the current version, sometimes blocking the UI thread. I know when I am debugging it I get an error, but never have without a debugger attached. And of course, Asynchronous programming is easy and couldn't be causing a race condition ;)
