Since we have only discussed inclusion of a design for a message
indicator and not for a message center, AND because v2 (which includes
some of the "center" stuff) is not going to be complete for Kubuntu
Karmic, we should keep true to the nature of the message "indicator"
and remove the links to launch applications if they are not running.
