Someone please correct me where I go astray... I think that
implementing something like the interface style notification across a
foolscap connection would require explicitlly defining remote_*
methods to receive those callbacks. Thus, there may not be a *huge*
difference in the level of control between interface and
notification-center style but there may still be stylistic reasons why
one feels better. Hopefully the design decisions that lead us towards
one style or the other for in-process notifications will transfer to
the networked or out-of-process cases.
