A new fishbowl proposal


Zope's dtml-sendmail tag is not integrated into the
transaction system. This leads to two problems:
    o Duplicate copies of each email will be sent if a request has
      to be retried due to a conflict error.

    o Emails can be sent even if a request never completes, due
      to an error rendering the tail of the page, or a problem
      detected at transaction commit.

Any comments gratefully accepted.
