Other platforms than Ubuntu + notify-osd have similar limitations.
Balloons on Windows and Growl on Mac OS X only support clicking the
widget itself, so there is no way to have multiple actions or clickable

If KNotification were to support them, it would have to live with
limited support for actions and hyperlinks. Providing a way for
applications to be aware of these limitations could be useful to provide
a better integration.
