Ok, so it looks like you're using the trunk version of mailer.py against
the 1.4 bindings. That would normally be fine, except that we seem to
have broken compatibility recently on trunk -- if you use the version of
mailer.py that was distributed in the 1.4 tarball you should be fine.

It looks like r21467 changed mailer.py to depend upon ChangedPath.action,
which was only introduced in r21655, so mailer.py now depends upon
the trunk bindings. So far, so boring, except that mailer.py has the
following text at the top:

# This version of mailer.py requires the python bindings from
# subversion 1.2.0 or later.

... which I take to be as much a statement of intent as a piece of user
documentation.

What's the correct change here?
  a. Fix mailer.py to work against the 1.2 bindings, or,
  b. Just update the mailer.py comment to say that it depends upon
     the 1.5 bindings.

Regards,
Malcolm
