A good chunk of my proposal is removing administrative overhead.  Its overhead 
now because we have to manually assemble the email, do write out the content, 
checksome the packages, push them around etc..  Its VERY cumbersome, and 
requires a lot of permissions I'm not happy about giving folks.  Moving it to 
Extras and tying into existing scripts or slightly new scripts to do most the 
work would lighten the load SIGNIFICANTLY.
