Yet another option for this is to use CruiseControl.Net to monitor changes to
DOC files and do the update there. That's the way I'd do it, but I'm already
deploying CruiseControl.Net. The advantage is that the user doesn't have to
wait for the post-commit hook. The disadvantage is that the window of time when
the .doc and .pdf are out of sync is a bit large, depending on the
configuration. (Plus the obvious disadvantage of yet another tool, if you have
no other use for CC.Net.)
