Actually, things have changed a bit.  We discussed Ayatana notifications 
with Celeste on IRC and she advised against having two places for 
notifications.  Instead she suggested to turn all notifications into 
passive notifications *if and only if* Ayatana notifications are enabled 
(ie: you still get active notifications by default).

I implemented this as well as click-through today and uploaded a new 
patchset on my page.
