I'm OK with multiple checkouts of the tools...but can't the hook only
access paths that really exist in the repository? Or do you mean,
stick a copy of the tools under each project in the repository itself?

That works if the tools project is a subdirectory of everybody's WC
root. But I like checking out just a single "trunk" directory.
