ttx review / 20100526:
 * In order to prioritize correctly, could you split the set into prio 1/2/3 based on how desirable each hook is ?
 * Suggested assignees: zulcss / ?
 * Estimated complexity: 3-5
 * Suggested priority: 3/Low
 * Suggested Subcycle: Iteration 1 and 2

jib review / 20100526:
 * As documentation on how to create apport hooks should be readily available,
   i'd like to enlist the help of the package maintainers to write the hooks. Looking
   at the list, this means enlisting the mailstack maintainers primarily.
   + There is loads of documentation on how to write apport hooks already in the wiki.
   + I agree with the mail stack, I was going to write debdiffs for postfix, dovecot I can do myself.

* Priority in brackets.
