kdialog replacement

I'm looking for a program along the lines of kdialog for some scripts I'm going to be writing out. However I would like something a bit more customizable (read: skinnable). Anyone know of anything along those lines? It doesn't have to be freature right.. just a simple popup box is all I really need.

Look into Xdialog; see if it suits your needs.

Not quiet what I was looking for, but its MUCH better then kdialog

What would be ideal is something along the lines of Growl of OSX. Ya know, a nice simple popup with no buttons or widgets. Like kdialog's --passivepopup option.

Thanks for the tip.
