Hi James. The topic of this mailing list is the development of
Subversion itself. This type of message is more appropriate for the
users mailing list.

There isn't currently a way to programmatically do what you suggest.
You could model this workflow using a branch-based changeset promotion
model, where incoming changes go into a holding branch waiting
approval, after which they're merged into the mainline. To support
this type of model, you'd probably want to use a tool like
svnmerge.py, or possibly svk, until Subversion has its own Merge
Tracking support.
