Is this a proposal to make it easier to see how important a notification is?
Like jabber users coming and going are normal notifications, while a failed
SMART test failed or a critical update would be flashing red notifications?

It would be very nice if we could get different levels and configuration options
for the notifications. If I'm watching a movie on my laptop, I'd
probably want to
be notified if the power cord had been unplugged, or if I had little
battery power
left, whereas messages from my nagging ex should not be displayed over
fullscreen applications.
