I tried it out and encountered two problems:

1. what do you do if you miss the notification because somebody distracted you?
There's no feature to show you the remaining time / current phase on demand.

2. Is there a less sucking alternative to notify-osd? That project is
horrifically complex for it's purpose... (and e.g. keeps bugging me
because it can't contact a gnome screensaver service)

Thanks for sharing it,
