a) It's not done yet; while Tom has a more or less working patch there 
are still a number of code & localization maintainability issues with 

b) Since it requires database format changes, it definitely will not 
ever be included in a 1.3 bugfix release. It may be included in the 
upcoming 1.4 major release once remaining issues are sorted out.

c) Since change notification is a generalizable issue, it would be 
preferable to rework it to use generic extension hooks: this means 
reworking it so that some backend parts go into the main distribution, 
and some parts might be provided as a drop-in extension package. Among 
other things the preferences form needs to be reworked to allow 
extensions to add fields easily.
