From a top-down perspective, we have really been trying to get away from
customized parameter names in the manager.  Custom names are fine
for the Event name, but we'd like to see you use common parameter names.
So I'd prefer something along the following lines:

Action: SIPnotify
Notify: <notify-type>
PeerCount: 3
Peer: <sip-peer-name-1>
Peer: <sip-peer-name-2>
Peer: <sip-peer-name-3>

with, of course, PeerCount defaulting to 1, if not specified.  That's
backwards compatible to the current Notify event.  There is no prohibition
in the normal manager against having multiple parameters with the same
name.  There is such a prohibition in the XML manager on the HTTP port, but
I'd propose solving that issue by adding -1, -2, etc. onto the names, to avoid
duplicates in those cases (and do it transparently by the same function that
translates events into XML).
