Wow. Yeah, we should at least have warnings all over the
documentation and the pre-commit template, telling people not to do
this.

Hmmm. How can we forcibly prevent hooks from modifying the txn? At
first glance, we can't. A hook is a program; a program can do
anything to the repository it wants to, permissions allowing. This is
why we invented the `svnlook' program, in fact -- to have a read-only
program for pre-commit hooks to use, iirc.

Maybe we could add a "lock a txn" feature. We'd turn the lock on just
before we start the pre-commit hook, then turn it off when the hook is
done running.

Thoughts?
