I assume this is wrt the original description of
"The system would basically send 2 version of the wave. A "wave"
version, and an "email" version. The same way we do plain text / html
currently for email. So we would add an email header including a reference
to the current wave, so if the recipient is using a wave-compatible
service, it would know to switch to wave. Otherwise, if it does not
understand the wave header, it would just ignore it and use regular email.
Something like that."

My reading of this is that we send a single email, but with multiple
contents (with different mime-types) in the way plain text/html email
messages work a la RFC 2110 (and friends).

Yes it will. Bruno's system involved giving any user signed up to a
wave domain an email automatically (powered by postfix o.e.), which
the user could then choose to have forwarded to wherever they would
The advantage of this method over handling it internally, is it allows
whatever form of munging the Wave server admin prefers. It also gives
us the users's 'email' programatically, which works nicely when we
start having it federated, as we don't need to perform cross-server
lookup's of a 'true' email.
