If you happen to have "line-of-sight" between the SVN server and the
buildmaster, you can use contrib/svn_buildbot.py to inject changes over a TCP
connection. It requires twisted on the SVN server, but then you just add a
commit script to your repository and changes will be delivered with a latency
of a few seconds instead of anywhere up to hours.

May or may not be easier than writing a mail parser and figuring out how to
deliver the messages :)
