show GNOME notification bar/message tray in 13.04 + 3.8 PPA

Actually, in Ubuntu GNOME 13.04, the notifications bar behave differently
form 3.8's one. Probably it couldn't be implemented because of dependencies
or something similar. In Fedora, for instance, it's impressively fast and
the kinetic activation works.

About showing the bar on the overview, that should be easily accomplished
by using an extension. As far as I know, there's no such thing in, but maybe someone could write it.

Regards, Alfredo.
