Mike and I just changed commit mails to have subject lines of:

    "Commit -- Revision N"

So now they can be uniquely discussed and threaded by your mailer.

Maybe you disagree with us here; we don't think seeing a list of 10+
files in a subject line is useful. It's just a lot of clutter. The
only reason CVS commit mails do this (or so we *thought*) is to give
mostly-unique names to mails, and to allow them to be threaded. But
we just accomplished that by putting the global revision number into
the subject line.

Hmmm. Right now, httpd is running as user "svn", and thus this is the
user that is exectuing the post-commit mail script. Maybe there are
options the script could pass to /usr/bin/mail that change the "from"
header? Anyone?
