Well, I don't want to just have anyone able to kick it; it's a potential
DoS.  Right now the way it works is that I have a cron job that runs
every minute to see if there's been a change, and if so it runs the
convert + push.  The change is detected because SVN touches a magic

One thing I could try is to see if there was an error during the push
and, if so, reset itself to re-run by re-touching the file.  The
question is how easily can I detect that something went wrong?
