It's not an observer-observable framework for programmatic use; it's
user interface. It's based on what I've observed Growl doing under OS X.
Invoking body:, label:, or label:body: on class Snarl causes a UI widget
to appear and then fade away. It's a bit like Object>>notify:, but not
modal and not focus-stealing.
If you've not seen Growl before, see http://growl.info/about.php.

The examples and documentation are in the class comment for class Snarl.
Thanks for pointing out the Squeaksource wiki: I've copied the bulk of
the class comment into there, as well.
