I like it, probably because my laptop does not support SW brightness support, 
therefore icon change is to hidden in the tray. Particularly the power 
unplugged is useful for me, as it notify me about lost power (that sometimes 
happens by accident).

I would agree with Tom that using KDE notification structure would be the best 
here, however there are plans to move from PyQt3/KDE3 to PyQt4 which does not 
provide this infrastructure. :-( And I really do not want to implement own 
configuration framework for notifications.
