Technically yes, but the net result is that the committer's working
copy is immediately out of date once the commit completes, so it's
strongly discouraged.

Client-side hooks do not exist in any officially-released version of
Subversion or TSVN, and are strictly a client-side setting (so all
users would need to have it set up on their desktop). I don't know if
client-side hooks are included in the "official" SVN 1.5 at all, or
whether they're strictly a TSVN thing. See
