Indeed, this would be nice.  I would like to be able to be notified when a
time-consuming R script has completed or when Org is done compiling my
PDF; tramp is done copying many files, etc.

Perhaps it would be nice if the default would already check some custom
variable consisting of cons of

      (FUN or regexp for evaluating message . FUN or String to notify)

Or each user can add this in her own custom message function.
