In working on some notification hacks, the following
small issues came up:

1) When using the xoopsmailer class to send a
private message, there is no way to express who the
message is FROM. For notification, we would like the
message to come from the administrator, not the user
who is logged in when notifications mails are sent (how
it currently works). I propose a new
variable 'fromUID'... if this variable is set, then emails
and PMs should take the user name and email
address from here as appropriate for the 'FROM'
fields. If not set, then revert back to original
behaviour.

2) There should maybe be a flag 'no-reply' for PMs
which, if set, will prevent the recipient from seeing
the 'Reply' button. For notification messages it would
be useful if it was impossible for users to reply. I
guess for emails, an analogous feature might be useful
(but I'm not sure how it would work).

I'll probably have more soon! :)
