I'm hoping it's quite simple :)

Does dav_svn_convert_err get in the way? If we have the post-commit
hook failure generate a specific SVN_ERR_REPOS_POST_COMMIT_FAILURE
error, say in svn_repos_fs_commit_txn, will ra_dav pass this error
back to the client?

If it does, then when the SVN_ERR_REPOS_POST_COMMIT_FAILURE gets to
svn_client_commit it will be returned by svn_client__do_commit. At
this stage the client can call svn_handle_error and then continue.

Even without such an enhancement, I think your patch is an improvement.
