[development] Request for comments: Remove comment history from issue emails

Hi All

There has been a feature request to stop including the complete history of
issues in each email sent when a new comment on an issue is created.  There
are two arguments for doing this:
1.  It's a waste of bandwidth, etc. to resend the complete history for every
issue, and my guess is that most people don't read anything but the most
recent comment.
2.  Some email programs that display messeges in a threaded format, such as
Gmail, display the entire message, and therefore reading multiple comments
in one thread in a row is painful.

I have summarized our options with this respect in a comment on this issue
at http://drupal.org/node/15380#comment-755454

If you have feelings one way or another about whether we should stop sending
the complete history and instead send only the most recent comment in issue
emails, please respond in the issue queue, not via email.
