Hehe, not quite!

Well I'd have a play with Gnome (whose current interface is much nicer 
than the KDE one), which pops up a nice translucent display whenever I 
press the buttons on my lappy's volume control panel.

Not sure which process actually does this UI, but I'm sure it wouldn't 
take long to see it.

Just google for various screenshots (including some Ubuntu patches to 
add it to notification daemon instead of standalone).
