One of the "interface is nicer" things is clients (i.e. .cgis) specify
which template file they want to send, and then pass the template the
information it wants.

That, and what Justdave said.

The SMTP RFC (2822, is it?) is pretty specific about what can go in a
header (7-bit vs. 8-bit, etc.), but as Justdave points out, lots of things
can go in a message, and we may put different things in bodies based upon
formats (when I did the design, I actually thought about MIME and sending
attachments in emails, both of which are filed bugs).

We have a vote for "email."

I'll go ahead and create that directory in the next couple of days unless
anyone stops me.
