Xpra: Ticket #1492: notification enhancements: icons, etc

See desktop notification specification.

The icons could be png encoded. The actions would require us to check that the client supports the feature before we expose the server-side capability.

new spec link (had gone 404)

Important bug fix in r17933: send icon data not path (which is often at best meaningless for a remote client). Minimal backport in r17934.

r17973 (+r17974): the macos python3 client can now use the gtk notifier

(edit ticket title since "actions" have been moved to #1735)

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 06:15:36 GMT - Antoine Martin:

r18195: when we need to show actions or when we don't have a native tray to bind to, fallback to using the gtk notifier.

This helps with #1688
