Gwibber should not allow notification merging

Bug Description

Very often, people post a sequence of various posts in a short period of time, but not all posts are on the same subject. When merged, such posts become a confusing mess in the notification bubble. Bug #499323 makes the situation even worse.

I believe microblog posts are designed to be self-contained and totally disabling merging makes more sense.

I originally reported this for the 2.0 version in Ubuntu Karmic,
but I just want to register that the issue still happens in current
trunk as Lucid release is approaching.

This bug is still present as of Lucid Alpha 3.

I can see that the usage of the 'x-canonical-append' is still there (lines 170, 171).
