If the repository mangles the files as they enter the repository, then
your working copy will be completely wrong. The working copy will
think, "ah, this file I committed is what the latest version looks
like", but in reality, the latest version in the repository is very
different. There's no way for the pre-commit hook to tell the working
copy that it mangled the data.

What Subversion people have done instead is to install a pre-commit hook
which merely *validates* a style, and rejects the whole commit if any
file files to conform. This forces users to run the reformatter.
