Thanks Dan.  I've been asking around, but no luck yet.  If I come across something useful,
I'll share it here.

Kye, i guess nobody knows. Try Alena, if at all possible I think she should know. I am sure
some of your colleagues should know as the event mechanism is more heavily used in cloud platform.

 Following a VM create, I do a task, which in the case where this task fails, I go back and
remove the VM that was just created using the API.  I'd like to be able to notify the user
through the web UI that this has happened.  "Your build failed because..." or something to
that effect.  Is there a way to pass messages back into the cloudstack web UI for the user?
 It looks like I can create an alert using the CloudStack API, but I'd like something that
gives more obvious notice to the user that their build failed, ie: a notification that appears
in their browser window under "Notifications" or a pop up window for some sort.
