Want URLs in gcc CVS commit messages?

Tom Tromey has recently added a feature to the CVS commit msg scripts
so URLs are appended to the bottom of the message.  If you follow the
URLs, you see the diffs that were added with this commit.  I'll append
an example below of the new format.  This is most useful if your MUA
can follow URLs or if you are reading the commit messages from the
web archive.

I wrote a 10-line shell script which (using lynx) will output the diff
for any commit in the web archives, it's a quick hack but it seems
pretty useful.

If the gcc folks want this enabled for the gcc-cvs mailing list, let me
know and I'll set it up.  You can see it in action over here:
