Comment(by Eben):

 Replying to [comment:12 cscott]:
 > This seems unclean to me; it would be nicer to have HomeBox define
 'add_alert' and 'remove_alert' methods which would figure out which child
 to add/remove the alert to/from, instead of having to do it everyplace
 which wants to deal with alerts.  If I could wish for the moon, I'd say
 that the code which switches between views could also transparently deal
 with moving the alerts between the currently active views.

 Agreed.  This alert should really be "global" in all zoom levels/views
 that aren't activity.  Switching list vs. favorites vs. zoom levels
 shouldn't matter.  I assume it's not possible to pack a control in
 multiple places at once, as though by reference?
