I considered dropping support for CRM_notify_* in 2.0, but I think we
want to retain compatibility with scripts that people wrote for crm_mon
-E (which itself will not be deprecated this go-around either). I think
I'd rather wait for a future Pacemaker 2.x to break those, since alerts
are still relatively new to users.

The notification-agent/notification-recipient syntax is different,
since it was never released upstream.

Not necessary, it's equally easy to s/CRM_notify_/CRM_alert_/g
