[wp-hackers] WP doesn't notify when comment is approved

I couldn't figure out why I didn't get an email once I approved a 
comment since upgrading to 2.5.1. So, I dug into the code, and found out 
that this is missing since 2.5, or more specifically since the 
moderation.php functionality was moved to edit-comments.php.

The relevant code in moderation.php was:
if ( get_option( 'comments_notify' ) == true ) {
    wp_notify_postauthor( $k );

This appears to be completely missing in edit-comments.php. Bug report, 
patch, etc attached to:

Cheers - Callum.
