I do this kind of stuff with cruise control. It will watch for check-ins and kick of tasks which can include emails if you want. I tie this in with CI builds... of course, cruise control doesn't have to run a build... it could just do publish/notify tasks if you want.
You can also set up a project in cruise control that watches it's own config file that you put into svn. When this config file is changed cruise control will update the WC it is in and then re-intialize with the new config info. The config file is where email addresses and such would be stored.
I would rather go this way than writing my own script.
