Tool for warning user that partition is almost full?

I know that this is not very "K" solution, and it doesn't look cool, but it should work:
Basically you need a script that would run continuously (in an endless loop) which would sleep for a defined time between checks (use "df" for checking) and pop up "xmessage", (which is a messagebox almost for sure included with your X server) if the given disk is over the threshold. It should be quite easy to write ;-)
As I said it's not very nice or cool but functional. I use similar script to monitor and restart my Realplayer as it's prone to crashes when streaming BBC radio 4 (it doesn't popup anything though). It's impact on the cpu performance is minimal.
