IMO it's not at hard at all.. When we keep on the approach that all 
notices and server apgrade possibilities goes into WATCHDOG_NOTICE 
there _is_ a central place to look into to get a maximum usable 
One glance at the 'notices'-page of the watchdog will give you 
everything you need to see what could be done to accomplish the goal of 
something you want to be able of..

That is - imo - better than struggling through all the settings pages 
and see why such a function doesn't work..
