Hmm, too bad. UI and core could be split though -- the widget handling could 
be done in the UI part, the communication with knotify could be done in the 
core part.

KNotification should not do error handling, that's right, but notification! 
knotify could even run without a DISPLAY and still support sound output, 
stdout/stderr output and logging to files.
