Good idea. I have hacked up something based on rss2email to do a daily
update of changes (the hacking was to get it to send one email instead
of one per change - I assume nobody wants dozens of messages a day,
which is what you'll get if there's heavy editing going on).

I subscribe to the changes myself, and I assume others will too, so
wiki spammers will get spotted faster than these updates will show.
