Feature Proposal: An easier way to subscribe to topics

Motivation

The current system for signing up to WebNotify is too technical for the people I am trying to roll Twiki out to.

Description and Documentation

A button in a prominent position in each topic that the user can check if they want to be subscribed to that topic. (I don't know what if affects). Subscribing to entire webs won't be much use to me (I have seen http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/PerTopicWebNotifyReports ).

/edit sorry I should have called this topic TopicNotifyButton

Examples

It would be even greater if you couls also unsubscribe using the same button (checks if you've already subscribed). And if there was a more graphical way to manage your own subscriptions (linked to from your user home page)

The mechanism for this is handled by the SubscribeAddOn. We are using that in our intranet Twiki, it works well! Not sure if it does the unsubscribe, if not it could be added.
