Some other modules (pomodoro) indeed provide notifications, it's just
that it has not been implemented/contributed in the battery_level one.

I'm always open to suggestions and contributions, feel free to come on
Freenode IRC #py3status channel if you want to talk about it more
"lively" or email me ;)

Even tho they use python as their primary language, these are two
separate projects with different approaches to enhance your i3bar. I
think the main one is still that py3status uses natively your
i3status.conf and enhance it [2] so you don't need any other config file

They both provide their own set of modules but those are not directly
compatible between them since their implementation is different. So I
guess it's just a matter of taste and contribution / discussion :)
