Comment 272 for bug 390508

Colter, I addressed your use case in my 2009-10-02 comment: to reiterate, you can’t reliably use an asynchronous notification API to give synchronous feedback on events like volume/brightness change, because your notification might be queued behind dozens of others. If it happens to work with notification-daemon, that’s roughly analogous to a Web page that works only with Internet Explorer: an interesting quirk, but of little consequence, because most people don’t use that software any more. As for the notify-send help text, as I wrote above on 2015-02-06, I fixed the text in bug 533631.
