I think the FSO guys could pick up this idea and integrate this in their 
o2 home zone is probably not the only message programms might want 
notifications for.
I'm just realising that they might already have this. And as i can see, 
they at least thought about it. :)

phil, i would really love to see this included in the home screen or the 
panel app.
I'm not sure it makes much sense to define some state file anywhwere. 
Since a real public api would probably not make much sense yet when we 
expect the FSO backends to take over eventually.
Just my 2 Eurocents anyways... ;)
