I agree.  Having the link(s) facilitates accessing the info without 
excessive cluttering.  It also means that the earlier issue of 
multi-file commits becomes much less of an issue, and the limits (or 
thresholds) mentioned in the suggested solutions (eg, diffs only if
it's a single-file commit, diffs for up to 5 files, etc) could be
raised substantially.  Still, an import of a gcc update might still
make for a rather large E-mail!  :)
