Can we hack kdbusnotification, knotify, or notify-send to work

I want a system tray popup. (Nikolaus) Likewise for xmessage or 
xosd. :-)

I already can create message windows with kdialog, KDED kwrited, or 
dcop. But such a script is then not desktop-agnostic. I don't want 
to waste time with a bunch of if-then tests. :-)

I want a message that does not timeout, which is broken in notify-
send when used in non-GTK environments. (Or possibly is broken only 
in Qt/TQt environments because the -t0 option does not work in KDE 

Besides the broken -t0 option in non-GTK environments, the 
notification popup does not use knotify or kdbusnotification. Seems 
like notify-send is an obvious option, but not integrated into TDE 
at all. Either notify-send or knotify/kdbusnotification need 

If notify-send supports/requires dbus, then patching 
kdbusnotifcation would be the most straightforward option?
