After some experimentation, we were indeed able to create a new action
trigger that leverages the existing penalty.PATRON_EXCEEDS_FINES hook so
that it generates an email at the same time the penalty is applied to
accounts. I'll work on figuring out how to put it in git for review, but in
the meantime, if anyone wants a description of how we implemented it, let
me know.
