Instead of hardcoding things into a plasmoid these informations should be 
collected by a demon (inside kded perhaps) and feed to the notifications 
system, no?

A system warnings plasmoid to sit on a panel would still be nice to have. It 
could connect directly to the demon. Or plug into the notification system, to 
catch all system specific notifications. Would be nice if this is possible at 
least. </thinking aloud>

If someone is interested I have some code left from my Khalkhi experiments 
wich does exactly this.
