in fact I often do some cooking, and having a dockapp to do
general timing is really useful. I don't know how washerdryer
notifies the user ; but something allowing to select various levels
of "visibility" could be really useful (flashing the app in the dock,
scrolling a message with libxosd if installed, flashing the screen
background, playing a beep, a sound, sending a mail, whatever!)
it can be done with "cron" and/or "at", but something requiring
only a couple of clicks (1 to summon the dialog, another to 
click on "king size brownie (20 min, background flash")) would be cool.

just my 2 cents...
