Mike Hearn and I have been drafting a spec for proposal to
freedesktop.org that would provide a D-BUS service for such
notifications. The spec is nearly ready for the peer review stage, and

Again, it's not finished quite yet. Comments, suggestions, and
criticisms are welcome. We have received feedback from a few different
projects, but we'd like more before we propose it.
