Oh, yes, please! This would simplify processing, as well; my current
bell-handling code is somewhat grotty -- making %g look like any other
% message would be nice.
It would be nice to have different bells for different events, as well.
Perhaps have bells come in the form "%bell [reason]"? Would this be
difficult to add?
