Feature Proposal: Add time granularity to MailInContrib

Motivation

Some people might want to be notified more or less often than averaa\ge. Consider ways to specify frequencies per subscriber: default and/or per topic tracked.

Description and Documentation

This could be added, e.g., as part of the (...) section on a notify line.

Obviously, once could not be notified more often than cron runs mailnotify. But one could be notified less often. Or there could be a variation to mailnotify that only processes config lines for people who specify a time slice.

Discussion

Yeah, this has been on the menu for a long time. It's a lot more complicated than you might think, because you have to balance the frequency of the cron job with the identification of notification times. There has been some discussion about having a TWikiScheduler, which would be a necessary precursor to this, i think.

One thing to remember, is that on UNIX, you have at, allowing you to schedule things at a time in the furure, rather than =cron='s primitive regular intervals.
