Good catch.  So is the API suitable for expanding to mainstream platforms?

Also “Qt Notifications” sounds too generic to me, and maybe a bit misleading… we know we need to add support for system/desktop notifications (like the sidebar on macOS, and other UIs on Android and iOS and others) and some work was supposed to be in the pipeline for that at some point - not that it needs its own repo, but this concept might still be the first association for many people.  Cloud-based notification is more specific.
