I just asked Wouter van Heyst ("LarstiQ" in IRC) if he'd seen your post,
and he said he'd been away from email for a couple of weeks and hadn't
seen it.  He's aware of it now and says he will be following up soon.

Wouter van Heyst is one of the developers of bzr_hookless_email, and can
speak to the question of whether merging projects is a good idea or not.
