I think there's room to experiment a little more here -- part of the
problem before was that it was like 'log -v' output and the lists of
changed files from trunk merges became overwhelming. But if we just
showed the log messages somehow intelligently grouped by author and with
a limit on the number we showed in the mail, I think it might be better
than what we have today.
