So, I'm willing to entertain (though, not code, at least not right
now) two new configuration options for mailer.py:

  repos_url = [Canonical URL of repository]
  viewcvs_url = [Canonical URL of ViewCVS view of repository]

For each of these, if it is present in a config block, the end of the
mail will have links to that URL. Though, for the ViewCVS one, the
link will actually be:

  http://server/path/to/viewcvs/repos?view=rev&rev=REV

This will display ViewCVS's new "revision view", from which folks can
see colored diffs and such, very much like the output from mailer.py
itself. See http://svn.collab.net/viewcvs-dev/svn/?view=rev for an
example.
