Notification applet - Was: Removable storage devices and sync



Just out of curiosity: How hard will it be to have a "message applet" in
tray, which connected to dBus, and an backend interface which provided a
bridge to this applet through dBus, providing an interface for the major
programming languages - including BASH. And it should be possible to
specify which user should get the warning - in case of terminal servers
etc.
