Why not add more flexibility to the daemon?

So a technical question regarding DCOP. I fail to see how do I
asynchronously publish an event that anyone would subscribe to it. I
mean something like gnoki daemon gets an information from the phone
"new SMS arrived" and sends a message/broadcast saying this. There may
be no application that would get this message, there may be a system
tray thingy that would show an envelope after receiving this, or more
applications doing simirilar or other things. Is it possible to do
with DCOP interface?

take care,
