[webkit-dev] Can we remove Notification.show()?

It should definitely not be necessary to call Notification.show(), although
I have not removed that API since I am busy with some other tasks
currently. What browser/WebKit revision are you using?

In Chrome 26, I just opened the javascript console and typed "new
Notification('blah')" and it displayed a notification, so it doesn't seem
like show() is necessary in more recent versions of WebKit.
