If you desperately want it to be BC, it can be made so. The addition of the
functions in KNotify with extra arguments as opposed to adding extra
arguments to existing functions would make it BC. The changes to
KNotifyWidgetBase are far more intrusive. You cannot modify the UI file.
Since KNotifyWidgetBase does not have a d-pointer, you need to manually do
the layout in the KNotify constructor after moving the new widgets into
KNotifyPrivate - I don't envy you if you decide to do this.
Since these are quite invasive changes (and potentially hard to maintain,
especially the KNotify changes), I would like to hear what the kdelibs gurus
think of the utility of this class. If they do bless this class for inclusion
into kdeui, I am willing to work with you on this to make the changes BC. We
could do this over IRC or private mail.
