 I was playing with libOSD too (changing workspaces shows its numbers).
 There are some plan to put OSD as a standard way to alert user on events such as mail arrive or download finished? Maybe a API or at least some guidelines on how to implement osd so that warnings have the same look'n'feel?
 Another nice thing to have: a canvas on taskbar.I just started to play with gtkcanvas and it seems a very powerful widget. In the taskbar we could show animations when mail arrive, or the status of a cdrom, or maybe a talking clip :).
Does anyone knows on how feasible is that or if is possible at all?
