Don't you mean that svnmailer is reinventing? Andre decided to fork
rather than contribute his work back to Subversion.

I was very interested in some of the work that Andre did with
svnmailer and went to take a look. Holy crap. There are a lot of
files, a lot of complicating abstractions, and other stuff in there.
I'm certainly biased, but I find mailer.py a lot more workable.

And if people want to contribute improvements back to the core
distribution, then how can that be bad?
