It's not a post-commit hook, it's a pre-revprop-change hook.
I meant "post commit" as in "editing/changing a log message or author
field at a point in time after the original commit has been done".

I guess that what I'd like to accomplish is that I'd like to save
Subversion users the time and effort they spend implementing custom
hooks by having a general and standardized solution. I uttered
elsewhere that since metadata is versioned in the next upcoming major
release of Subversion, changing log messages and authors on past
commits wouldn't need a pre-revprop-change hook, but then I got a
doubt and came here to check.

I'm not trying to accomplish anything particularly fancy. In fact,
it's a rather simple stunt, and the procedures involved is
well-documented. I was just trying to find out if I was correct when
I mentioned elsewhere that commit messages and the author field will
be versioned in the next major release or not :-).
