I intentionally left it at 1.2 for wider compatibility. I personally
use 1.3+ on all my servers though and don't mind if it get's changed.

I used the GPL because
  a) I generally prefer it
  b) I considered the interaction between hook-script-caller and
hook-script to be separate enough that the license difference would not
be a problem.
  c) I didn't think this script should have long-term use or need to be
migrated out of contrib/ into svn proper (i.e. as you mentioned svnadmin
should eventually know how to clean a repository, and the code should
eventually be fixed to remove need for a hook-script.)

Do you expect it to be a problem? (Or turned around, in what ways would
it be helpful if it was BSD-ish?)

Cheers,

-Nathan
