commit-access-control.pl lives in tools/, actually. Blair Zajac seems
to be the primary maintainer for it, historically. I don't know
whether he has any time to look at David's changes, but I've CC'd him.
No pressure, Blair, just let us know whether you have time to process
this.

David, you don't appear to have posted a patch yet, is that right?
The place to start is by posting a patch with a log message, against
the current commit-access-control.pl. See

   http://subversion.tigris.org/hacking.html#patches

for more.

Best,
-Karl
