Sorry for the slow reaction. This is a good idea. I have noticed that you (?)
have removed X-GNATS-Notify from in the current CVS version. I have
tested your suggestion of introducing a new field in dbconfig and it works out

One suggestion though. Instead of tagging a Cc: header onto Subject:, I have
simply added the new field (Notify-List in my case) to to-addresses in the
audit-mail format:

   to-addresses {
        "Reply-To:" | "From:" | "From"

By the way, there are still two X-GNATS-Notify occurrences left in,
so the mail header is still present in PRs. Is that on purpose?
