 Replying to [comment:10 kadamwhite]:
 > I recently read an article (dangerous words, I know) that noted a
 situation where people perceived an interaction as *slower* after the
 addition of a spinner, even if the load time actually stayed the same or

 I think that this may have been cited originally for the media modal,
 actually. However, I don't think the issue here is a perception of slow -
 it's a perception of broken, because there's no "no items found" message
 or anything like that.

 Anyway, sounds like we need a different approach, so punting from 3.7.
 Please feel free to turn that pseudo-code into real code and a patch :)
