Oh, right. Yes, it is only needed to build part of the documentation and thus
just a BUILD_DEPEND.

The update for compiz-fusion-plugins-extra requires libnotify >=0.6.1. I
suppose that means that the newer version had an backwards-incompatible API

Right, and a lot of them depend on it, so it's a big deal.

Like i said, just with Transmission-gui. There's no other packages that i use
(besides ekiga maybe and compiz-fusion-plugins-extra) and those had no issue
with it. Saw no problems with either of those. I could probably get someone to
test it with the xfce4 stuff.
dh's suggestion is probably for the best, but could we import this as
libnotify07, and slowly link packages to it as we test them (such as the above
two which have been shown to work)?
