I've been thinking more about this, and KNotify isn't really a good
semantic match. If you look at the API docs it's really a lot more
generic, codes presentation styles into the API and so on.

I think a better approach would be to just have a simple proxy app (or KDE
backend to the current notification-daemon ref impl) which uses
KPassivePopup directly. That way you get KDE UI, a C++ backend which I
think they may like ... KNotify isn't used under the hood but as far as
the user is concerned the experience is very similar.

Lubos, any thoughts on that?

thanks -mike

(ps franco I hope you meant DCOP and not DCOM, otherwise I may have to
shoot you ;)
