Leaving them

Right - we need to keep the groupset stuff in there for exactly that

We leave it as is. We really have to do that, else we have to start 
parsing cc chang entries for email addresses, and so on.

If we change the activities table, then that means that mail will end up 
being sent, which is relaly not what we want. (Well, it might be, but 
thats a spoearate issue)
