(1) Brane has recently added platform identification to the 'svn --version' command; is there any reason to use different code here producing a different set of platform identifiers? It would seem much better to share that code -- whether using just the 'platform' string or the whole 'platform-cpu-vendor' (or whatever it is) tuple -- so that the two sets of client identifiers cannot get out of sync.
(2) C-Mike Pilato (?) has recently added some sort of ability for pre-commit hooks to see more information (via txn-rev-props), which AFAIK was partly intended to let the hook see more info about the client platform. I don't know exactly what it does, but isn't that a more suitable place to put any new extensions of this kind of functionality?
How does what you're proposing relate to those two developments?
