I don't like such notification stuff too, expecially the
beeping but may be usefull to have some kind of customization
which allow to do a certain thing (other than beeping). Indeed
"notification" is more than just a beep IMHO. What about using
a code like the following rather a "static" beep(3) or flash(3)
which, if defined, is executed?

#if defined(NOTIFY)
        NOTIFY /* Some notify */

This way we could have a thing like this in our config.h file:

#define NOTIFY flash() /* beep() */

or even a bit more complex example like this:

/* Would you provide a better example? :-) */
#define NOTIFY flash(); beep(); \
                mvprintw(LINES - 1, 0, "Hey, do you like notify?"); \
                refresh(); sleep(1);

Indeed it's better than the comment we actually have, i think.
