Yes, that pre-commit hook is certainly a good thing at the moment.
Maybe we can give it more visibility and make it more accessible when
releasing 1.10.

IIUC, after Stefan Fuhrman's recent commits trunk can now handle sha1
collisions in the back end, i.e. the repository can store both
colliding files correctly. So with 1.10 it would no longer be
necessary to protect the back-end with this hook. But the client-side
and 'svnadmin dump / load' still have problems. And even if those were
fixed, the hook would still be useful to support older clients from
your 1.10 server.
