Question voicemail notification hook - possible?

FYI, I posted a question to anyone familiar with WM5/6 development over on xda-dev (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=385083)... I'm pasting it here as well, in case any of the creative minds out there have any ideas:

Hey all,

Let me preface this by saying that, while I have some background in development, I'm not overly familiar with the .NET side of things or WM programming in general. I'm hoping someone out there with experience on the subject might be able to identify whether or not the below is feasible.

My problem: Sprint doesn't supply an accurate unread voicemail count so, whenever I have any unread voicemail, my phone (Mogul) only shows "Voicemail: 1 Unread" regardless of how many I actually have.

My proposal: Would it be possible to somehow hook into the Voicemail Notification API that Windows Mobile uses, and basically just keep a running counter of "New Voicemail" notifications sent? That is:

* Each time WM sends the phone a "New Voicemail" notification, the counter increases by 1 (this number could be displayed on a Today-screen plugin, or similar)
* The user would have the option to call and check their voicemail from a button on the plugin (which would then reset the faux unread voicemail counter to 0)
* The user would have the option to manually reset the count to 0 (e.g. if they knew they'd already checked the message via different means, etc)

Obviously this isn't a perfect solution, and is really more of a "how many voicemails have I received since I last cleared the counter"-type app, but I know it's something I'd love to have.

I started looking for WM5 or WM6 API documentation, but even the MSDN library seemed somewhat bare.... the closest I came was some documentation regarding the "State and Notifications Broker", though I don't think that would be of any use (as the reg keys associated with unread voicemail only seem to change upon receipt of the first unread voicemail).

Any thoughts?
