I'll review your patch when I have some time. Next time, please use the bug
tracker to notify me of a patch.

However, I am also totally in disagreement with the use of GsdWindow. It it
way too intrusive, in my opinion, to display a volume change right in the
middle of the screen. There is a difference between providing feedback and
invading you with information you consider of secondary importance.
