I installed the script in our main repository here. Some folks complained
about the "flood" of emails for large pushes, but having separate mailing
lists solved that.
Others really appreciate the individual messages with full patches. It's a
challenge to create one script that can satisfy all users, but IMHO this
comes pretty close.

I look forward to trying out your updates. One thing I had to do to the
original script was override get_envelopesender() in GenericEnvironment to
use $USER if hooks.envelopesender is not set. (This is what the old
post-receive-email script does.)
This script is one of a couple of things on my git back-burner. Hopefully
things will settle down here soon and I'll be able to get back to some git
hacking in the next few weeks.
