I did write such a beast, but I'm not sure where I've kept it. It is
essentially a procmailrc and another perl script that determines what to
update. But, it does not work anymore - It used to be possible to retreive
changes from anoncvs right after they were committed, but there is a delay
now, and it's usually hours before they can be found on anoncvs. Thus, the
setup I devised for automatically grabbing changes no longer works :(

If I can find the scripts, I'll be happy to send them along anyway.
