as an URI) can deliver the notification immediately.
I've done this part.
1) Add a test to check if a notification method (specified

Expanations: for sending an SMS, or mail it cannot be said if the
message can be delivered immediately, as it depends on many things,
and even if a notification can be delivered during the test, this
does not mean that it is delivered delivered immediately at a later
point, when the notification is send. On the other side, if an SMS of
mail is send, an acknowledgement can be requested, that the
notification is read/delivered. Naturally, this will mean that the
interpreter has to stop for certain time, like 10s, and wait for the
I don't particularly like this part of your suggestion. In particular
because many implementations don't send a notification when a notify
action is called, they defer sending the notification till after the
script evaluation is complete and can do this asynchronously.
What you suggest will also block message delivery, which might be
inacceptable for some deployments.
