Who besides a SVN developer would know that pre/post create-txn comes
before pre-commit? I do not see how these names are an improvement.
I also do not think start-commit, pre-commit were all that confusing
to end users. The confusing part is always just understanding what
you can do in the hooks.

Did you ever say why you ruled out your earlier idea of simply moving
where the start-commit hook was called to later in the process where
more information would be available?

If we have a new hook, I do not have an obvious idea as to better new
name. Maybe init-commit just so that the link to the commit process
is being maintained. Then we would have to document the order is
start > init > pre > post

It seems like moving the start-commit hook would be easiest option and
I do not immediately see how it would break existing hooks. So I do
not see the downside to that option.
