 I disagree. While, as imath points out, there may be relatively few people
 using sitewide notices, it's still the case that they are completely
 broken for theme compat. We should do *something* for 1.7, even if it's

 I think a widget would be neat, but there are lots of problems that have
 been amply spelled out above. Maybe for 1.8.

 For this release, I think going with r-a-y's suggestion (hooking into the
 footer only when theme compat is running, and outputting the messages
 there - so a form of hardcoding) is probably the lightest-weight, easiest
 solution at this point. Before I write a patch for it, are there ane
 objections to this route in principle?
