This is a very simple patch to add global notification for a wiki, this
is especially helpful for small relatively private wikis where you
want to see all changes (and not have to subscribe to every page).

It adds three fields to the config, and uses them in PageEditor.py
for the notify only.

    I may have misunderstood what this does but... subscription
    understands page regexs. So, to see all changes to the wiki,
    in user preferences you just add ".+" to your list of subscribed
    pages and you get all changes.

    ?

    Yes, it is similar to that, but actually, we use it to send mail to an alias.
    Otherwise everyone has to subscribe globally...

    Note that the original patch suffered from a lack of testing, this new one
    does much better.

    AFAICS you can get exactly the same effect by adding a new
    user account with the email address you want and .* in the
    subscribed pages field. So no additional code or config
    entries are needed.
