         E.g., "I'll read mail
       now, beep me when output starts or finishes" perhaps requiring a
       comint-buffer-hide-hook or similar.

   That's not easy to do, given the overall design of Emacs.
   Can you come up with a suggestion that doesn't require
   doing anything special when switching buffers?

Sure, some hook runs when output goes to a shell buffer,
which notices the time and whether or not the user can see it.
Compare to earlier tempo and visibility.  When invisible,
include the last line or so of output with the password prompt.
Noticing tempo changes will be harder.
