Regarding the icon, what I want is a quick indicator to know if the text
that popped-up is worth reading right now or it can wait. This can be
combined with the ability to stack dzens: if a message is ultra-important it
will show the corresponding icon and will dismisses only when clicked.

I like the text-messages used in media-players to signal the begining of a
song with the title and the cover. Amarok, listen, quod-libet...they all
have nice message windows. I don't know if they are very dependant on
something more than gtk...
