I agree, they're everywhere - but it doesn't explain this well-written RFC[1] to accompany the code.

[1] http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6108

From the RFC:

> R3.1.1. Must Only Be Used for Critical Service Notifications Additional Background: The system must only provide critical notifications, rather than trivial notifications. An example of a critical, non-trivial notification, which is also the primary motivation of this system, is to advise the user that their computer is infected with malware, that their security is at severe risk and/or has already been compromised, and that it is recommended that they take immediate, corrective action NOW.

So much for that.

Probably written by a different person.
