Unfortunately, there is no "right way." You would have to talk to the
user's session bus (or all users' session busses). That's more of a
general D-BUS issue rather than a notification issue. Now, we could
extend the notification framework to also listen on the system bus,
but that's tricky and requires a lot more thought. For the time-being,
I don't have a good answer for you, except find a way to listen to the
notifications (per-user) and then emit a notification. So, a proxy of
sorts for this specific case.
