xcowsay (display a cute cow and speech bubble)

xcowsay displays a cute cow and message on your desktop. Inspired by
the original cowsay.

xcowsay includes all these amazing features:

* Fully configurable!
* Calculates display time from amount of text.
* Dream mode - display images in the bubble.
* Can draw thought and speech bubbles.
* Daemon mode! Send your cow messages over DBus!
* Three different sized cows provided.
* fortune(6) wrapper xcowfortune: cow will deliver pearls of wisdom!
* Replace the naffness that is xmessage(1).
* Should work with any window manager.
* Supports UTF-8 characters properly.
* Use alternative non-cow images if you like.

If you're using older hardware and have problems with this, you may
have better results with xcowsay-1.4. To do this, get the old source:
and run the script with VERSION=1.4 in the environment.
