This is already used to send the commit message email. However, it is
really hard to get this mechanism to update web pages on a different
machine (especially under a different account than the committer's
account). Leaving security aside, the commit program runs with the CVS
lock still being hold by the committer. If the commit program tries to
update a CVS tree on a different machine, you get a deadlock.
