in thread RFC: Subscription to nodes

I haven't looked at the code, but this would probably be quite complex.

How do you figure that? Just add in an extra function call whenever a node is posted that checks who's monitoring the node's parents and send a message to those users. Seems straightforward to me :)

    Oh yes, look at the parent, get a list of interested people, then look at *its* parent, get a list of interested people, then *its* parent, and so on. Then de-dupe the list, then mail it out efficiently. That alone could get quite expensive.

    You also need a database schema change to somehow record a list of people who want to be mailed about posts. Plus the interface for users to add and remove themselves from those lists.
