My tray app was built do handle this (events, at least on Win95). If/when I
can get access to the sources, I'll see about adding a "user message" for
the NT service. But I haven't had alot of time to work on the tray app. I did
sent it to some folks but haven't heard back any comments. I've been running
it locally and of course I think its just fine. :-)

MS certainly believes that TransmitFile is the way to go (unless
ISAPI filters need access to the outgoing stream)
