If we want to go fancy we can do something like what the Gmail app does when archiving a thread via a swipe in the thread list: leave a placeholder item with an 'undo' button, then collapse it later such as when scrolling down for more mails.

I put the watch star there so I can say it was developers intuition.
My reasoning was it should be easy to undo the action. If we were to
delete the row from the watchlist, there is no easy way to get it

It's also tied to the page watchstar. On a page that watch star
doesn't disappear so this is consistent with that.

I only did it this way as that was the easiest way to implement this
but I'm sure there are better ways - e.g. maybe showing a link to undo
on the notification instead.
