Been using that as an alternative to using handcent. It works great, and you can set it to how it will popup (only if phone is locked or all the time) and the notifications are from the stock Messaging app.

The Stock Messaging app also places an icon in the notification bar until you actually view your SMS, that will stay there indefinitely.

Another good alternative.
