The goal is that they'll be a required building block for any module  
that needs to send e-mails.  :-)  At this point, we're reviewing the  
implementation, the APIs, the hooks, and the configurability.  To  
help, you'll need to dive into the code, and review the proposed  
patches.  We need you guys' help.

The sooner the better, because we have less than 3 months until the  
next code freeze.  Proposing or changing patches the size of this  
just before the code freeze doesn't increase the likelihood of them  
being accepted in time.  It are busy times around code freeze dates,  
so in practice, the big patches have less time left.
