This actualy does not work, because the notification will be closed instantly
and it will never appear.

I'm currently in the process of writing a patch[1] to change that. The problem
is, that emacs give the notification a static id and if there is a notification
from your application with the same id windows wont spawn another notification,
because you can update the notification. My plan is, to genrate a GUID and use
that as its id, so that you can have multiple notifications and don't have to
close the notification. But this does not work yet, since my C skills are not as
good as it used to be.

Thanks for your work!
