Quick update: The software change has been "live" for about two weeks, and the plain-fancy-sig error at enwiki (the wiki with the most errors) has declined from 1000+ to ~850 since then. Since our lists are only people who have made an edit during the preceding 30 days, I think this is largely new editors rolling through the system. I'm therefore going to postpone individual messages until the software has been in place for a minimum of 30 days, so that we can minimize the number of messages being sent (and therefore reduce the risk of flooding anyone's watchlist).
