Can the pre-commit hook sent a message to the SubVersion client, if it allows a commit?

Can the pre-commit-hook sent a message to the SubVersion client,
if it allows a commit?

It can sent a message, when I write in the STDERR string
(done in a Perl-file) and return error ("exit 1")
from the pre-commit.cmd file
(which by the way has executed the Perl-file).

A message don't show up, if I return ok ("exit 0").

How can a message come through, if i want to allow a commit?

Info.:
------
We use the OS'es WindowsServer2003 and WindowsXP.

I have installed "svn-1.2.3-setup.exe" on the server (WindowsServer2003).

Some clients use the GUI "TortoiseSVN-1.2.5.4719-svn-1.2.3.msi" and
others use "svn-1.2.3-setup.exe" from a console window.

I do just that :)
