Restrict allowed subversion client for repository access

I was wondering if there was a way to restrict the Subversion client that is allowed to access my repository. Furthermore, I might like to restrict the version of the Subversion client that is allowed to access the repository.

Specifically, I would like to restrict repository access to the TortoiseSVN client and possibly some web based clients such as WebSVN.

My reason for wanting to enforce a policy such as this is to:
 * Ensure that tsvn properties are effective
 * Ensure timely upgrades by users in my group since I don't otherwise control their computers or have another way to enforce upgrades (and would like to save the time of confirming that each user has upgraded)
 * Enforce a consistent policy in a medical software development environment, where we are required to have standardized tools and processes.

I was wondering if it might be possible to do this through a pre-commit hook, but could not determine if the svn client information was available to be passed to a pre-commit hook script.

Thank you,
- Ryan
