Me neither. It left my mail queue about a minute later.

Oh no, I was giving a use case. Yeah, we know we can do that stuff on the
client. But in terms of administrating things, its easier if it were on
the server. The client-centric approach has issues. Since clients can run
any number of operating systems each with varying support for scripting
languages, different path configurations, and some people even use a GUI
(like RapidSVN or TortoiseSVN).

While its not impossible to do this in a client-centric manner, the
hook-script approach just seems far more elegant.
