of course it is strictly related. that this wasn't made obvious in the posting 
to kde-core-devel is a little odd but also completely what i've come to 
expect. i didn't really feel like going into on kde-core-devel because i don't 
think there's anything to gain at this point, but it's no  surprise that the 
people who felt it necessary to come up with such a patch are the people who 
have removed actions from notifications. 2 + 2 = 4.

before this gets carried forward into a big thread on this list, it has been 
made very clear that Canonical is intent on following through on these ideas 
as they are. it  is an insular project without outside participation, which is 
something they are perfectly free to engage in and i fully support their right 
to do so. 

now, whether anyone else outside of Canonical thinks it is better or worse 
seems to really not matter. any discussion on it is therefore a waste of time. 
and i'd prefer not to waste our time on this list.

btw, i'd recommend to anyone using the Ayatana notifications patch not do so 
on a laptop running on battery power if you care about getting the most out of 
a battery charge.
