I also haven't been paying overly close attention here, but it strikes
me that some of this may be reinventing the wheel a bit. I believe
that svnmailer (http://opensource.perlig.de/svnmailer/) already has
this kind of functionality (splitting diffs across multiple mails,
excluding them in favor of viewcvs link if they're too long, etc).
