personally, i think that it should only be shown when there is a conflict and 
the key binding is either re-assigned or to ask the user what to do (worst 
case scenario).

note that knotifyd also sends notifications whenever a global accel is 
pressed, which means a rountrip over dbus, and this notification is never 
shown to the user and is only there for debugging purposes. personally, i 
don't think this overhead is warranted.
