I haven't looked deep to know the implications here. But it would be
nice to allow these scripts to be invoked simply with no wrappers.

Thanks for the explanations. We didn't have the cron job running, but
also hadn't changed the default. Personally, I'd find the settings
almost entirely noise.

Perhaps what would make sense is to allow individuals to enable
notifications personally if that's what they want? (rather than doing
this on a per-project basis).
