Isn't brane's point that if say svnserve crashes it should not try to
pop-up a send mail dialog which would only be seen if someone was logged
in and looking for it? None of my Win2K3 servers have someone logged in.
You say that it can just save a zipped copy somewhere. That is excellent.
Problem is you do not say how. Is that something that would have to be
done with code, a config file, what? Along with brane's previous
suggestion, maybe the command line could work one way and the servers
another? Personally, I would be fine if it just dumped the crash to a
file and in the case of the command line spit out some info as to where
the file is located and where it can be mailed to.

I looked at your most recent patch and did not see any examples of
