I agree with you that now as we have per path access control for
svnserve these hooks aren't as important as they've been. But on
the other side they could be used for other things like logging,
preventing people from checking out too much (e. g. root) as
recently discussed in another thread or blocking certain IP
addresses.

What exactly do you mean with "The efficiency implications are
major"? Would the hook significantly slow down things?
