[SailfishDevel] Transient notification categories

I'm trying to improve the filtering of notifications in the pebble 
daemon for Sailfish, and I stumbled upon the category property 
'transient' in the QtCreator docs which it said indicated that a 
notification would only be flashed at the top of the screen and not left 
in the Events view. I thought that would be a good indicator of whether 
the notification should be forwarded to the watch, so I did that, but 
after that no messaging notifications were coming through at  all. I 
checked the category files, and all of the messaging preview categories 
have the transient property set, even though they are persistent on the 
Events view. Can anyone tell me what's going on here? How does the 
system decide which notifications end up on the events view?

Is there additional documentation about the notification system anywhere 
that I don't know about? Someone mentioned that a new notification model 
in SF2.0 would let us sidestep the '2 new messages' notification and get 
the real preview text, so I'd like to find out about that too.

Thanks very much,
