Will other snippets be replacing the hardcoded Sync message for 29?

What about the lifetime of 29?

You should only see this banner if you've never set up sync (old or new), and it should go away forever if you hit the "x" button on it [2]. There's already a bug filed about the fact that the banner doesn't go away after you click it to set up sync [3], but if you find any other issues, please file bugs and cc me.

Last time we tested this feature, we discovered a lot of problems (a.k.a. the "Thanks for using Nightly!" banner of doom). We believe we've fixed all of these problems, but if you see any new banner-related issues, please bring them to my attention, and I'll make sure we fix them.
