[tomboy-list] Bring a note on startup

Just to add my 2c, here's the open enhancement bug:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=351436

I wrote a python script that does a bit more than tomboy-remote, and is
available at:

http://code.google.com/p/tomboycli/

It allows inline editing from the command line, or into an external text
editor (vim, etc). Please let me know any suggestions if you end up using
it.

Best,
Doug
