I'd say this is an good suggestion and as such, it should go into
the bugzilla database.   Even if we don't do it for this release,
it would be something to consider for future releases, too.  Please
submit a defect report with a priority of "enhancement" and we'll
see where it goes from there... thanks for the idea!

notfiication mechanism.
