 >If this ticket is about notices not appearing in theme compat., that's
 what we need to fix. The other good enhancements can come in a later

 I agree, but (sorry to insist) i think the widget is really interesting to
 maximize the appearance of notices in theme compat. In previous versions
 and in this version with bp-default activated, the notices are displayed
 in the sidebar. Now, if for some reason, the active theme use a "no-
 sidebar" template to display BuddyPress content, the notices won't appear
 in the sidebar, and you'll need to display it elsewhere (for example
 footer, header).
 Now if you use the Sitewide notices widget, by checking if it's active
 before eventually allowing administrator to activate the checkbox in the
 compose screen or displaying a message inviting him to activate the widget
 to be able to send notices, then it's easy for the administrator to change
 his template and add the widget to his sidebar..
