monotone.  When I made my statement earlier, I was referring solely to the

whose built-in tools are more efficient for me than searching my mail.

At any rate, I can still search my commit mails folder faster than I could
browse to such an "awesome" webpage.

I would expect anyone who wants frequent access to ViewMTN to bookmark it once
finding it, like I would do if I cared to browse something in someone's CVS or
SVN with their installation of ViewVC.

This is nothing more than a trivial modification of the stock SVN commit mail
post-commit hook--the stock SVN post-commit hook does not have this feature;
similar has been done to our monotone commit mail script, as has already been

That said, X has long supported highlighting text to copy it, followed by a
middle click to paste, thus saving the effort of typing a revision number.
