which is fine. we have code in svn that shows that we can quite easily map the
subset of knotify (the daemon process) functionality that is visualization of
passive popups to a such a d-bus interface without relying on it in the least
(it falls back to KPassivePopups as always if the d-bus interface is not
the d-bus service itself gets implemented in a Plasma::DataEngine, and no kde
apps see the d-bus service in the least.
we wanted a way to push passive popup notifications to visualizations anyways,
using the galago spec for this gives us the bonus of being able to play host
to gtk+/gnome apps nicely as well.
on the knotify side, it means that kde apps running in gnome can also
transparently integrate into libnotify provided visualization UIs.
so ... minimal (e.g. zero) disturbance to both desktops, increased
interoperability. it's a win-win imho. the galago spec needs a lot of work,
as one can see in my last email, but i don't feel a change in scope is
necessary: the GNOME people are happy with it, KDE can use it without
compromising our level of functionality in the least and it nicely fits in an
existing visualization niche we need to fill in plasma anyways..
i do hope that the galago project members are willing and able to work on
polishing the interface with other possible consumers of it to bring it to
the point where it truly deserves its designation in the org.freedesktop
