It would persist from page to page until either clicked on or

"Relating to what Earl mentioned before ("When installing a new
module, I still have trouble figuring out what to do next"):
In the efforts of making Drupal more user-friendly, I also think that
the install messages can include a little notice of what to do next.
For example:
after enabling "blog" - have a link to the admin/content/types/blog
after enabling "contact" - have a link to the admin/build/contact, and
remind the user to activate the menu item
after enabling "comment" - remind the user to check permissions, and
configure individual content types settings"
