The outstanding question then, is what timeline do we choose to follow
for deprecation/removal.

Given that it does _not_ use the bindings, just svnlook, the coupling to
 a specific Subversion version is very loose indeed. Therefore, users of
the script will not be prevented from upgrading, if we abruptly stop
maintaining it. Therefore I'm inclined to slip a deprecation notice into
1.5.0, and plan on removing it before 1.6.

And, I've just noticed we have a commit-email.rb as well!
That one *does* use the swig bindings. I'm not sure what to suggest there.
