Beware though that post-commit hooks may be running concurrently, and
your 'svn update' launched by $REV might still be running when $REV+1
tries to start 'svn update'. I believe that, with 'exclusive locking
mode', the second 'svn update' will fail fast because the first one
has the working copy exclusively locked. You'll have to handle that
somehow (if you just let the second update fail, your WC will be out
of date after the commit of $REV+1).
Maybe it's best if you take this thread to the users@ list, which
seems more appropriate to discuss this further. Larger audience of svn
users / admins who may have developed strategies to handle that ...
