I agree - why does Subversion need to provide and maintain more than one
sample post-commit mailer? It's nice to have *something* included in
the core package, but when I tried to improve commit-email.pl.in, I
found to be not very easily rewritten (no jokes about all Perl code
being that way). ;-)

We could also just mention SVN::Notify for the Perl-inclined, which is
at least as advanced and flexible as mailer.py (plus I have some
proprietary interest in that one, since I have several subclasses of it
that I have written/maintain).
