If you aren't averse to Perl, then SVN::Notify and SVN::Notify::Config
can do this. The former is the e-mail part and the latter is the "make
it trivial to produce a post-commit script" part. SVN::Notify::Config
can even store the config file itself in the repo, so that the entire
post-commit script becomes:

#!/usr/bin/perl -MSVN::Notify::Config=file://$1/svnnotify.yml

I could easily see scripting that to give people a nice clicky on a web
browser of the repo to select which files they wanted to "watch".
