That's nice.  Alas, now you have me distracted from my thesis and
wanting to write something which works similarly but instead pops up a
"U" or something on my dzen2 statusbar.  ;-)

(Though, that might be too subtle - my laptop keeps shutting itself
down because I fail to keep an eye on the statusbar; I need to pop
something up with xmessage or xosd or something (what's nice for
this?). More hacking!  Anyway, back to it...)
