Scriptable tray notifications

I have written a little python script that allows you to put notifications in the taskbar using a simple command line program. Here is the project page.

You can create a command that gives you different feedback based on whether a program failed. For example a good use would be for ./configure scripts.

Now you can let ./configure run in the background and you will get an icon when it is done.
