Yeah, it's best not to have too many competing efforts when attempting
to standardize on something :)

I've been off doing other things, mostly Galago-related, but I'm
working on the various pieces like a puzzle for my master plan of
world domination^Wimprovement, and also for a demo I need to prepare
for at SVLUG in August. So, work is going to be done soon, and the
notification server is going to be changed a bit to show off what all
can be done with notifications from a UI-perspective, since there's a
lot of focus as of late from people on making the specification more
than it should be.
