It has been a while since this was requested and i am happy to say
that it is now implemented.

It is actually a user-specific setting (My account -> Preferences ->
E-mail Notes Limit) which wasn't used by anyone until now. I have now set
this to 1 for all existing users and adjusted the configuration so that
new users will also have this set to 1. In case someone wants to go back
to the old "all bugnotes in a notification" behavior, just set the value
to 0.

I have also dropped the bug history from the bottom of the
notifications. This way there is no distracting text below the bug note;
the bug note (the essential part of the notification) can thus be easily
identified. For an example bug note, see


Thoughts, ideas? Just let me know.
