Name that service ...

 I would like to call the service that makes the phone "jump" when an
icon is selected on the home screen (it does this on the G1 at any
rate).  Part of the problem is that I have no idea what to call it so
I do not know how to find it!  Does anyone know if this service is
exposed and if so, what is its name?  Better yet ... is there a list
of the currently available services?

 I think I figured it out ... vibrate.  I thought that the vibration that
occurs when you click on a home icon had a different feel than the standard
issue vibrate ... but I guess its just the quickness of the pulse.  Hope
this helps someone else.

                android.R.layout.simple_list_item_2, c, new String[] {

I'm trying to learn more about how all the android pieces (kernel,
libs, framework, etc) work together.
Can I attach a de{*filter*} to an existing app (with / without source
code) and see whats going on behind the scenes at each function call?
