merging should be available with notify-send

Bug Description

Binary package hint: notify-osd

Is there a way to use merging with notify-send ? As far as I can see, its use, with something like :

antoine@lambda:~$ notify-send -i notification-message-im hey john -h string:x-canonical-append:allowed
antoine@lambda:~$ notify-send -i notification-message-im hey bob -h string:x-canonical-append:allowed

is prevented because notify-send doesn't cumulate IDs (as seen from the debug output of notify-osd). Is there a particular reason for this requirement ? I'm trying to build notifications for emacs using notify-osd, and this prevents me from using the append feature. Why not just append if the hint is provided and the title and app match ? This should be enough to filter all false positive.

This seems like a duplicate of bug #257135 ?

Thanks Anders, but 257135 is about replacing, which is different from appending.
