This is one of the most exciting hints I've ever seen: direct, effective, and abstractable.

By "abstractable" I mean that it can be applied to other problems. In my case, I had been looking for a way to launch a script that would send me an SMS message when a particular file had been accessed from my webserver. (By sending an email that has an embedded .gif which is hosted on my webserver, this script can notify me when a particular email has been accessed, presuming the recipient loads the image/signature in question).

I tried using bubblegum which is a great program except the daemon magically loses the ability to execute its associated script after a dozen minutes or so.

So, a heartfelt thanks to you, fredrikw. This is the most useful Macosxhint I've come across in months!
