What I was thinking of was a URL into which could be plugged two
revision numbers. The URL would be user-configurable. (Any diff
functionality is going to take exactly two revision numbers, right?
Or is that overly optimistic?)

svnlook needn't be involved in this at all. See Sameer's original
patch for why not.

I definitely didn't mean to suggest we encode a particular repository
browser into mailer.py. What I meant was to give it general
functionality that could be used to support *any* repository browser.
