Not sure how much of a pain this idea would be to implement, but it
would be great if all email went to the address specified by MailTo,
unless you specifically override that value in a custom bro script.
That way a bro script could have something similar to a local MailTo
variable and all notices sent out from that custom script would be
sent to the new email address.

I still don't think we are completely sure the direction this will go long term, but it is definitely unclear at the moment.
