And the basic mechanism looks good.
I see one problem with it: it doesn't play well in an environment with
user-based authentication. Mail notifications are configured through a
single page that needs to be editable by everybody with read access to
PmWiki (configuring mail notifications should be roughly equivalent with
read access after all). In a wiki where not all users are trusted
equally, this isn't feasible.
So *if* there's user-based authentication, *and* users have personal
pages, PmWiki should take the watch list off that user's personal page
(if every user gets a group, it could be taken off the user's NotifyList
