Up to 11.0, powersave-notify provided desktop neutral notification.
Since 11.1, there is no way, how daemons can notify desktop users about
fatal issues.
smartd needs to notify about dying disc
nut and apcupsd need to notify about failing power (hal power
management cannot be used yet, as many UPS devices are not auto-
detectable, hal static-config-based prober does not exist yet, nut-hal
supports ony HID devices and apcupsd has no hal connector at all).

This should be added to a bakend like the HAL database so that desktop
applets can catch the information and show them to the user. We already
have something like this for "defective batteries" gnome-power-managar
shows to the user.

#2: Stanislav Brabec (sbrabec) (2008-12-16 11:48:45)
Virtual console may be another way to implement it:
But such simple implementation does not allow i18n.

Please reject for now, but I like the idea of the common desktop
