I don't really consider that blank line a negligible point, which is why I
said "without having to send a line of text with it." Sure, if you're going
to send a line anyhow, that's not a problem, but what if you weren't? The
lily-poker code sends a reminder message that takes up screen space, when I
would prefer to have a beep with no output. (Or maybe one reminder message,
then just beeps.)

Would these be signals based on particular events? I think there should also
be a way to do signals on their own as well...
