minibuffer vs dialog-boxes

In order to bring the user's attention to the minibuffer when an item
such as "Edit -> Search" is activated from the menu, I was just thinking
that we could draw a big rectangle around the minibuffer, blinking
(or zooming in-and-out) until some input is typed in.

This way we don't need to implement dialog boxes for such text entry
(where the use of a dialog box is not nearly as important since
the keyboard has to be used anyway).
