That sounds like a good option to me.  The other day I wrote up some
notes[0] on bringing the update system out from under it's rock, which
would help bring a bit more cohesion between the core/extras/legacy
projects.  The update system would have no problem firing off emails all
day, so both are viable options.

The metadata generation code is already in the update system, and having
all update notifications stream through a pup applet sounds like a good
approach.
