My feeling is that Subversion has to provide a script like this. Why?
Hosting providers. I do not believe that they generally provide users
with access to the hook scripts, and they are not going to want to be
constantly tweaking the script as needs change. By making a script that
is driven by properties it will allow a hosting provider to simply enable
the script and then let the repository owners control it by setting
properties.
