New Registration - EMail Default Option

In Admin Panel,  Members -> Registration -> Settings :  an option to allow new members, upon registration,  to select email notifications for all boards (allowed by permissions).
[Update: I've discovered that email notifications can be set (by admin) for all boards, for any member, but the member only gets notifications (and board access) via the board permissions anyway, so it's acceptable - even desirable - to enable notifications for all boards (as if it was done by admin), and let the permissions then dictate which boards actually send email notifications to members.]

Nicety: Add a note on the Admin member profile notifications page that member/board permissions dictate which boards actually send email notifications.
----------
New user registration form: Required Information;  (if enabled above), Receive Posts Via Email Checkbox - (default enabled and all boards enabled. If registrant clears the checkbox, email notifications for all boards are disabled)

Very handy for those of us "migrating" email distribution lists to the Forum. The member then by default gets all email notifications and can turn off  individual boards as desired, rather than have to turn them on.
---------
Additional behavior:
  • if a member turns on any individual board notification in their profile, Receive Posts Via Email Checkbox is set (but all boards are not enabled as during registration).
  • if a member turns off all board notifications in their notifications profile, Receive Posts Via Email Checkbox is cleared.
    (Likewise, if a member clears Receive Posts Via Email Checkbox, all email notification checkboxes in their profile are cleared as well)
  • if a member subsequently checks Receive Posts Via Email after it's been turned off, all board email notifications and checkboxes in their profile are set as during registration
