I didn't really think about the notification stuff. The only notifications I
care about are already bound to the mode-line : jabber and gnus notify me this
way. Especially since my objective is having a distraction-less work optimized
environment (fullscreen, no bar, no window decoration, no scrollbar, ...). I
don't like to be disturbed by notifications.

Note: I wrote this activity buffer filtering mechanism flexible to easily, for
example, associate a jabber buffer to my Linux kernel coding activity just by
calling the interactive jabber-chat-with function.

This module is ready for that. The automatic associated buffer is the bonus part
:) For example, this is how I define my Emacs hack activity.
(add-to-list 'available-activities (make-activity :name "Emacs"
                                                    :enable-hook (lambda () 
(toggle-debug-on-error t))
                                                    :disable-hook (lambda () 
(toggle-debug-on-error nil))
                                                    :buffer-filter-p (lambda 
(with-current-buffer buf
major-mode 'emacs-lisp-mode)))))
