We were looking into using INotificationProvider to let the user know that they have items awaiting in a queue, and it works really, really well with just a little code.  The one thing that we will need it to do is to provide the ability for the user to close the message and have us write something to the database to suppress that warning next time (via a callback of some sort).  Is something like this possible, or is the Notification Provider just for simple messages?

I think one way to handle it is to have the message return some HTML that links to a "close message" page and that could handle the database call, and then redirect back...it seems like what the Migrations message does when a module needs updating...
