Bug ID: 61555
           Summary: Check for new messages on wiki during bot run
           Product: Pywikibot
           Version: core (2.0)
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

At the moment (at least for core, and probably also for compat), new messages
are only seen if the bot is restarted. For long-running bots, it's sensible to
break/pause/stop editing on a certain wiki when a talk page is edited.

Getting the info from the wiki is easy -- just add meta=userinfo&uiprop=hasmsg
to the api query. Afterwards, meta=notifications can be used for details.

Added bonus: every api query returns a check whether the user is still logged
in correctly.
