Re: [PATCH 2/3] Only show log entries for new revisions in hooks--update

I seem to recall that something like this was discussed recently
on the list.

While excluding commits on already updated branches works if the
same set of recipients receive e-mails for both branches by
eliminating the duplicates, I suspect that in more elaborate
settings people would want to do different notices for different
branches, and for that kind of usage people who subscribes only
to branch1 in your picture would miss what happened on branch2.

Or maybe branch1 is the main integration branch (e.g. 'master',
'next') while branch2 is a tentative topic that does not send
out notification e-mails.

If we want to take this example hook seriously, I suspect that
the existing mechanism based on hooks.* variables might need to
be made to allow finer grained, per-branch, control.  I dunno.

Post 1.5.0.
