You know, I'm totally against adding a server->client transmission
channel that's useful only for log message templates. Whatever we decide
to do, even if it's only *used* for log templates in 1.3, must be
designed so that the same mechanism can be extended for other uses.
Otherwise we're headed for the proverbial maze of twisty little
passages, all alike.

We already have pre-commit hooks that can abort the commit.

Eh? What is this if it isn't a server->client configuration transmission
mechanism? That you want to implement it with a hook doesn't change that. :)

Users also want to be able to define autoprops on the server, either
per-repository or per-directory. The problems are much the same as with
log message templates, except that you'd have to somehow get at
autoprops when you "svn add", not when you "svn commit".

In fact, the feeling I get from reading users@ (without actually
counting messages) is that server-side autoprops are more important than
log message templates...
