Very true. What could be done is to add a member method like this:
bool KNotification::supportActions() const
This method would check whether the knotify plugins associated with this
notification support actions. knotify would then do something like this:
for plugin in pluginSelectedForThisNotification:
In the current implementation, all plugins would return False in
supportActions(), except NotifyByPopup which would return True if the
current popup server supports actions.
Would it make sense to implement this?
