Hi Bastien,

I did not realize that appt could not be used.

It works now.  I pulled in the interim, but I don't know if that's the
reason.  I tried it twice, so I don't think I missed the notification.

However, the notification is in the minibuffer / echo area, and can
easily be unnoticed if you are typing, as it goes away immediately.

These are just brainstorm ideas, but appt pops up a window for a
configurable number of seconds and raises the frame.

The mode line can show the number of minutes overdue.

type-break.el uses persistent minibuffer text and lets you control
whether you continue to be reminded.

Raising the frame is important, but beyond that I am not sure which is best.

As for sound, I have disabled all emacs sound, but this would be the
one thing that would be good to have it enabled for; not sure how to
enable it just for this pupose.  Perhaps org could use let or flet at
notification time if a variable is non-nil.
