Is there any way to get Skype to show tray notifications only for specific contacts or groups of contacts, rather than for everyone or no one?

There's a shareware Skype Extra called Contact Alarm that claims to do this, but it runs as a separate program, creates a tray icon, and doesn't use Skype's native notifications.

Unless Skype adds the feature, it seems the Extra is the only way. And based on the extras API documentation, it doesn't look as though a proper Skype tray notification can be created by an Extra. FYI Extras are going away. –  opello Sep 30 '09 at 4:19
