I definitely would like to see git-multimail in contrib/, and to have it
considered as "the recommended way to send emails from a hook". It does
all the old script did, and much more.

post-receive-email can stay for people who don't have Python on their
servers, or for existing users who don't want to migrate.

My preference would go for a subtree merge to keep the existing history
(that would mean extracting a subdirectory of git-multimail's tree
before merging it to git.git).

OTOH, it's not urgent, people can already use git-multimail by taking it
from GitHub.
