Zend Framework user messaging system

There are many ways to notify users of error, information or warning messages. one very simple way is to define a notify method that creates an array of messages for the view.

Part of the trick is to follow the DRY convention : Don't Repeat Yourself, e.g. avoid duplicating code.
