there's a handy property to determine if you have new messages:

Hmm, true. You might be able to emulate the functionality by using
prop=info on the user's talk page (and perhaps storing the last time the
user visited the page in a cookie).
Hi again. Sorry for the late reply (as I read most of wikitech-l
threads in batch, I missed that one after the subject change).
Yes, that's a good idea and I think I'll do something like this. Thanks!
(Ps. It strikes me that the simplest and most
efficient way to implement
cross-wiki user talk notifications would be as a MediaWiki extension.
Why do we not have one already?)
Sure. It would be both far more efficient and easier to set up.
I guess I should really dive into MediaWiki development…
