merge tracking: rejecting commits from svn clients < 1.5

Hosting a publicly available svn repository and in our private ones, I
would like so reject merges or commits from 1.4 clients that would not
probably update the merge tracking info in a 1.5 server.

I'm thinking this is something we may want to provide, as an
administrator, I wouldn't want people committing and not properly
updating the merge info, as I'm guessing it may cause more work later on
or cause untracked merges.

Can we provide this info in the pre-commit hook somehow?

With mod_dav_svn, I guess we can get the client version string and use
that? Would the easy way be to reject commits at the Apache level and
parse the client's name?

But what about file:/// or svn:// access?
