How about developing a spec for all DE's and implement a common low-level API...


Not sure how best to phrase this... however, here goes.

If we develop a specification and present to f.d.o, which would allow all DE's 
to integrate this spec via a low level API, which would send D-BUS 
notifications and allow any "listener" to pick them up and decide what and how 
to display the notification? 

This allows Gnome's DE to decide how to present without precluding a KDE or 
XFCE implementation from choosing their own method of dealing with the 

If the bus is simply presenting the message, then it's DE agnostic and much 
easier to deal with. I think this is what we should be looking into.
