By the way, if we were to do the hook thing, I'm fine with adding a
new parameter to the hook's command-line, or an option like

   --client=[tsvn|rapidsvn|svn|whatever]

...so that the hook can make decisions about which template to send,
based on knowledge about the client's likely interface. No site has
to use, or even parse, that option, but maybe some sites would be glad
to have the information.

In general, +1 on changes that help clients DTRT.
