Use the post-commit hook in roughly the same capacity as your current
pre-commit, and call 'svn propset svn:keywords Id
file://localhost$path' when keywords are not set. Then call 'svn
commit -m "Automatically setting svn:keywords to 'Id'."'

This results in an extra revision whenever a file without svn:keywords
set is committed, but I don't see how else to do this.
