Desktop environment agnostic notification popups

Are there any notification popup tools to use with Trinity? 
Especially to run in scripts.

kdialog is TDE-specific, as is dcop.

There is rwall and KDED kwrited, but that is not a small system 
tray popup.

libnotify provides notify-send, but notify-send is GNOME-centric. 
For example, the infinite timeout option, -t0, does not work with 
either TDE or KDE4 (works fine in Xfce).

There is dbus, but that requires installing an optional Trinity 
package, kdbusnotification.

Ideas? Recommendations?
