Might be a little OT for xdg-list, but: would you be interested in 
adding support to libnotify (or accepting a patch) to query for the 
'actions' capability, and if the daemon doesn't support it, 
transparently convert notifications with actions into dialog boxes (and 
proxy GtkDialog::response to NotifyNotification::action-invoked and 
::closed appropriately)?  Would be great to avoid having to write 
special-case code in apps to handle daemons that doesn't support 
actions, and I'd bet the Ubuntu guys would be happier to not have to 
support actions at all for compatibility.

Glad to hear it ^_^
