wildcard working copy paths for TortoinseSVN client-side hooks

I'm looking into TortoiseSVN client-side hooks and according to http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-settings.html you must include the working copy path. It appears that this is just a filter used to pick what script to use; if the specified directory is part of a working copy, and you commit that directory or a child, then the hook gets invoked.
The problem I have is that users may use a particular folder as a container for many working copies, and they may rename them and still commit from the renamed working copies. In this case I would rather have the hook build in the intelligence to know whether it applies to that particular working copy, and if so, do its work. Or branch to different sets of logic based on what it does find.
Due to this use case, I wonder if we could get support for wildcards of some sort in the working copy paths? Being able to say "C:\*" or "C:\Foo\*" (or regex matching) would allow us to get more comprehensive coverage with scripts.
