idea of new feature: some way of calling external command after each commit

Hi All,

I got the idea of having some way of calling an external command after each commit. This could useful when developers always do the same things after a commit so that it can automatically done.

One could, of course, write his own little script wrapping the svn ci command and adding the other external command... but this could simply integrated into svn.

For example, I found that one could wish to have a file containing the version string of his software, e.g. as in major.minor.patch.revision. This file could be then hosted on a website an used for a "check for update" feature. However, it would painful to update that file and upload it to the website at every commit, hence the idea.

What do you guys think ? Is it worth doing ?
If so, I'd be happy to implement it...
