The protoGrowl package is a "Seaside binding" for protoGrowl[1]. This
is a Javascript tool based on the Prototype[2] library. It enables
developers to display bubble-styled user interface messages inspired
by the Growl[3] notification system for OS X[4].

When you create these messages is up to you. Your options from boring
to exciting are:
- At initial full render time.
- At a server callback triggered by Scripticulous. For example onClick
or periodical.
- On the server via Comet.

The PGDemo class contians examples for the first two.
The protoGrowlComet package contains an example using Coment, it is is
not needed for use with Comet.

Scriptaculous is required.
