This is much needed. I think you can pretty much call this module 
'abandoned'. So please proceed with improving it.

I will need to do some work in the next few days to offer group 
subscription in organic groups module. the sooner you can share your new 
code, the better. i will add a tab and hopefully be able to integrate 
with your 'my subscriptions' listings and so on. would be sweet if i 
could offer digests using your code as well.
