You're right and wrong here.

Right:
- Compositing with Ati or Nvidia (anything except intel) isn't working

Wrong:
- the statement that compositing isn't working.

Did you knew that KDE 4 uses the xorg composite extension? that means
that compositing works on vesa as well! not fast but working. So
compositing _can_ work if the creators of the notification deamon (and
nodoka, you) invest some time to get it in then compositing is always
working! which (to me) is worth the time.. but then again i'm not the
person who is gonna break his head in implementing it. I will send in
a bug report (RFE) for the notification-deamon.

I can make that. However i probably won't include that timer thing
because i'm still making this with the assumption that the balloon
vanishes after 3 till 5 seconds so i see no point in making it visible
how long you have till the balloon vanishes. and for that left
stripe.. i will see how i make that fit in.

I will probably leave the timer out till you/martin/anyone else
convinced me of the use of that timer. It's a nice idea but i simply
don't see it's advantage.

Expect a new mockup here somewhere later today.
