Client-side hooks are on my todo list. But that will take some time to do.

But such hooks would only return TRUE or FALSE, not interfere with in
some way with an operation. Either allow or deny the operation and
return an error when denied.
TSVN would only pass the path to the working copy (or in case of
multiple targets a list of paths) and the hook program would then have
to do the checking itself.

I think it's easier for a tool to implement http than to ask all
Subversion clients to implement SOAP or worse each proprietary protocol
for each bugtracking system out there.

If you drop the XML format, we can talk about this. Don't forget that
C++ doesn't come with an XML library.
(yes, I know there are such libs available, even for free. But
increasing the size of the TSVN installer just for this?)
