One of my annoyances with a couple of other programs that I use a lot is
that such types of messages stay around too long in those programs.
What if you look at the screen 30 seconds or 5 minutes or 2 hours later
that message is still there?  It is now completely out of context!

While maybe 5 seconds might be a little quick, conceptually I agree that
it should not last very long.  Maybe 8 or 10 seconds or even 15 seconds.
But not longer.
