I  know  this does not address your question  directly,  but
have  you considered third-party services, which can achieve
merely  the same thing? RSSFWD(.com), for example, is a Ruby
On  Rails-based service that will deliver updates from  your
blogs  by E-mail, even in clustered/digest mode, which is  a
recently-added  feature.  In  almost a year,  it  has  never
missed a beat.

Hope it helps,
