Adding a set of 'cvsweb' links is trivial, especially when the
majority of the Perl code to do so is already in the DragonFly
repository (see $MAIL_TRANSFORM):

I've been running a modified version of that code for a few years, and
it works just fine.

There looks to be support for appending the diffs to the outgoing
message, too, but I've never tried enabling that functionality myself.
