That's right. Current behavior is that if the user has Growl installed, 
Growl will be used, else OS X
notifications will be used. I did not include the possibility to use OS 
X notifs explicitly as to do so
one just has to quit Growl.

Indeed, if wanted, I will submit a new version of this patch that 
doesn't changes the modules shortname to not break
existing configs and the enable/disable code. Is there anything else I 
would need to consider?
