Commit monitoring daemon

"CVSToys' is a collection of companion tools for CVS (Concurrent Versions System). It currently consists only of FreshCVS, which performs actions (including notification by email, HTML, RSS, or IRC, updating a working copy, and rsync'ing to backup) in response to a commit. Users receive one notifications per commit, not one per directory of the commit as loginfo-triggered scripts tend are to do. FreshCVS is extensible with Python; notifications may be published by a Perspective Broker network service, so 3rd party clients can listen in.
