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

I think there is some confusion here: what KDE is pushing right now is a
specification for what is often called a systray: an area in the desktop
where applications can show icons. These icons can respond to click
events to trigger actions or show a popup menu.

This specification has nothing to do with notification bubbles like the
one from knotify or notify-osd. The KDE implementation is called
libknotificationarea, which is a bit misleading. Aaron Seigo already
asked for ideas on a less ambiguous name.
