Sure, no problem.

Possibly.  More likely is that the sent mails will be able to
make use of page variables, so there would just need to be some
page variables to allow that to happen.

Oh, I hope not.  It might eventually tie into the authentication
groups somehow, but initially I want to keep them separate.

By default the script will honor the setting of $EnablePageListProtect,
and for purposes of generating the update messages it will assume
that an anonymous user is attempting to access the page(s).
(At the moment I don't have a cleaner way than this to handle things.)

The admin will have the ability to override read-protection for 
specific entries in Site.NotifyLists.
