Well, that's why it's so nice to get commit emails; they describe
exactly what got committed. You could certainly modify your
email-script to examine and announce the file-sizes of things that got
added in each commit. On the other hand, if the email shows a user
committing a large collection of .mp3 files, that may be enough
indication. :-)
