Got rid of saying "notification area" and just generally saying this is for visual feedback. Still I think using the notification area is a good idea, rather than entering "Panic Mode" and slapping the user in the face with a dialog every time. --JohnMoser

John, apport-gtk already provides most of this, and I don't want crash reports to be reported automatically (can of worms, really). Are you fine with marking this as implemented and discuss the remaining bits in wishlist bugs?
