Just make sure you test the bejesus out of it. I just got through
dealing with an issue where I had to use sendmail rather than connect to
SMTP server in the commit-email.pl script. Using SMTP would cause the
script to fail (at least after upgrading to 1.4mumble), and a
commit-hook script failure would then lead to assertion errors in the
client, (1.4 or 1.3) leading to the client mistakenly believing that the
commit didn't complete and also leaving the working copy in a state
(even after cleaning up the locks) where no more commits (of those
files) were possible.
