commit_email.pl improvements

Several things I want to do with commit_email.pl. Feedback needed.

1) I have a svn tree with 6 different projects in it. I only
   want mods to specific portions of the tree emailed to specific
   mailing lists. So I'm thinking to add a table with two
   columns, the first is a regular expression to match against
   a path and the second is the email address. If any of the
   modified paths match the regular expression, then that email
   address gets sent the log.

   The question is, where to create the table. Should it be
   a list of command line arguments, something like

   % commit_email.pl ${REPOS} ${REV} \
     -match '^/(trunk|tag|branches)/proj1/' proj1@xyz.com \
     -match '^/(trunk|tag|branches)/proj2/' proj2@abc.com

   Here -match takes two values off the command line, the regex
   and an email address. There can also be a catch all email as

   I don't like using two command line values for a single
   argument, so what about putting them together, something like
   -match 'proj1@xyz.com,somebody@abc.com:^/trunk/proj1'

   The : is a separator between email addresses and the regex.

   Two other solutions are to hardwire the table in the script
   itself, but this is a pain when anybody updates the script
   (do you own diff and patch your own script) or to create a
   configuration file for the script and load in the list from
   there (cleaner, but yet another file to set up).

2) commit_email.pl doesn't handle renames really nicely. Right
   now they look like this:

   New Revision: 128

   To prepare to load orca-0.27b2 into trunk/orca, perform 2 renames.

   * trunk/orca/packages/Digest-MD5-2.16: Renamed from
   * trunk/orca/packages/Storable-1.0.13: Renamed from

   Copied: Digest-MD5-2.16 (from rev 127, trunk/orca/packages/Digest-MD5-2.13)

   Copied: Storable-1.0.13 (from rev 127, trunk/orca/packages/Storable-1.0.11)

   It would be great if adds and deletes could be matched up.
   This would be a lot easier if the Copied message that
   'svnlook diff' prints would print the complete path to the new

   Does anybody mind if the first path name was changed? It
   would make matching up named much easier.
