Have a hook or such so that messages can be delivered to the users via a
standard single way.

We had a quick discussion about this in #mediawiki:
> <p858snake|_> also LQT really should activate the big orange new message bar 
> when someone leaves a message on your talk page
> <Ashlee> p858snake|_: Maybe. The orange bar is kind of horrible.
> <^d> It would be nice if we had some standard way to inject things up there.
> <Ashlee> Up where?
> <p858snake|_> without it, if the person doesn't know to look for it they 
> probably miss the fact that they have new messages\
> <Ashlee> The orange bar also still goes below the <h1>, which is just wrong.
> <^d> Ashlee: Where new messages, central notice, etc.
> <^d> Should all go above the <h1>
> <Ashlee> All the notices already do.
> <Ashlee> There's an old bug about the new messages bar. 12XXX something.
> <^d> Reinventing the wheel is nasty.
> <Ashlee>
> <^d> Would be nice if there was just something like 
> $wgOut->addPreHeaderContent() or something.
