using .commitmail files to get addresses for commit-email.pl

I have found it useful to receive commit messages for only part, rather
than all of a repository. This is possible with commit-email.pl using the
-m regex option, but one has to have access to the post-commit hook to make
changes regarding recipients. dot-commitmail.pl allows recipients to
modify their per-directory messaging preferences using ".commitmail" files
in the repository.

dot-commitmail.pl does not replace, but augments commit-email.pl. It can
be invoked from the post-commit hook with or without recipients, just as
commit-email.pl was. dot-commitmail checks for ".commitmail" files in the
committed version of the repository, and reads recipients, one per line.
It invokes commit-email.pl with those recipients only if modifications were
made in the same directory or subdirectories.

Please consider adding dot-commitmail.pl to the subversion tools
distribution along with commit-email.pl. It can be found here:
