Make your pre-commit hook return exit code 1. I don't remember if you
can throw a specific error-message back, though.

A post-commit hook would have to use svn_fs.h directly. You'll need
to be *very* careful that you don't accidentally trigger the
post-commit hook again, putting you into an infinite loop.
