There's nothing wrong with using the uncommitted transaction as the
"staging code area," although the command-line client will probably try
to remove it after it times out, so you'd have to integrate the code
review logic with the client somehow.

Or you could use temporary branches: the code review logic could create
a commit on a temporary branch from the commit transaction, then reject
the commit. Once approved, the temporary branch would be merged back to
the original commit target. Or you could save the transaction itself and
then replay it locally.

In any case I doubt that you really need support from core Subversion
for this. If you can implement master/master replication, surely you can
also implement some kind of "pre" commit review workflow. You don't need
Subversion 2.0 for that.
