I think there's a misunderstanding, I'm not going to touch the mail
interface. It's not my code so I don't feel comfortable rewriting it
since I don't quite understand how it works. I'm just talking about
the web interface (DDTSS).

Well, anyone in with a account on the web interface has a verified
email address. We don't do anything with it though, it's just an
attempt to make sure it's a real person.

I've heard rumours of a review interface via the email, never been
able to find the code though. But in any case the email and web
interfaces will continue to live next to each other, oblivious of each
