	Oh, that's not half bad.  I just cooked up a script that
converts Subversion's commit-email.pl emails into a call to 'buildbot
sendchange'.  I'm intending to run that out of the buildmaster user's
.forward.  It discovers the repo identifier alread, and I was going to
have it switch on the repo identifier to see what buildmaster to contact
(assuming one buildmaster per repository).  Instead, it could prepend to
the log message.
