    • weither or not the notification should remainin until closed
  • image
    • Auto-detects the context:
      • path to an icon sets --iconpath
      • path to an image sets --image
      • capitalized word sets --appIcon
      • filename uses extname as --icon
      • otherwise treated as --icon
