Visuals: Soft Add-to-Cart
Now for a focus on visuals and behavior, please!
Volusion, 3dcart Version 4, and this WooThemes user from Turkey (at http://wosci.com/demo2/?post_type=product&p=128&osCsid=kl1hqjm70pnoc448j9ikmu69n4) offer carts with an elegant AJAX overlay so that shoppers' attention aren't directed away...it'd be nice for WooCommerce to allow this, too! (Yes, it does have something like this now, a banner confirmation of add-to-cart, but an overlay could be an option, too!)

This is nice and slick! would be a nice addition to WooCommerce I think!
What I'm talking about is just like the modal window/light box effect that happens when clicking, say, the "what happens if I run out?" link on the upper right-hand corner of this page, under the "votes left" heading....
