wxPython - 'notifications' on desktop

Is it possible to display notifications (like those displayed by IM clients when someone's status changes/a message arrives) using wxPython? I tried googling/browsing documentation to find if there's a way but no avail.

TIA,
Greg.

Hey, Greg! Long time no see...

I'll look into it for you and get back here.

Among other things, The Remaining issues section of the 2.8.6 docs says:
These are some of the remaining problems to be sorted out, and features to be supported.


Windows Mobile 5 issues. It is not possible to get the HMENU for the command bar on Mobile 5, so the menubar functions need to be rewritten to get the individual menus without use of a menubar handle. Also the new Mobile 5 convention of using only two menus (and no bitmap buttons) needs to be considered.
Sizer speed. Particularly for dialogs containing notebooks, layout seems slow. Some analysis is required.
Notification boxes. The balloon-like notification messages, and their icons, should be implemented. This will be quite straightforward.

Oh, brilliant. Thanks a lot, should've found it myself. Anyway, I think it refers to the kind of notification XP uses to annoy users, like nagging every 5 minutes to enable automatic updates, not custom popups IMs use. I suppose that those have to be implemented as frames with modified style or sth to that effect. I was hoping there might be a quicker way but apparently there isn't.

Cheers,
Greg
