In a limited way, you can do that now - from your email configuration.
 Simply set up a pipe as [one of] your mail recipient[s].  A script
then can do whatever magic.  This sample entry in /etc/mail/aliases
creates syslog messages - notice for the normal output, err when
something goes wrong:

rancid-group:       "|/bin/logger -p user.notice  -t rancid.group"

rancid-admin-group: "|/bin/logger -p user.err -t rancid.group"
