No, the pre-commit and post-commit hook scripts receive only fixed
arguments. It's assumed that you can use 'svnlook' or other tools to
examine the stuff that is committed.

What kind of "external arguments" do the hook scripts need to pass to
your bug tracker? If it's metadata about the commit, perhaps it could
come out of a file or directory property?

For example, require that users set a specific 'bug-number' property
when they commit (enforced by the pre-commit hook script). Then the
post-commit hook script can look for the property.
