I only looked at the kdebae patch.
Appart from the name that Aaron already mentioned:

in knotify/notifybypopup.cpp:
-	int timeout = !timeoutStr.isEmpty() ? timeoutStr.toInt() : 0;
+	// -1 means: notification server decides
+	int timeout = !timeoutStr.isEmpty() ? timeoutStr.toInt() : -1;

That's wrong.  We do not want any timeout.  The norification has to stay 
forever until it is closed by the user or by the client application.

I am not sure the image can still possibly works on kde with this patch.
