This has been FA, although I'm not sure it's in a FAQ somewhere.

Short: no, you can't. You'll have to write a wrapper script for "svn" to
beautify the source code *before* commiting (i.e., before sending it to
the server).

Long: The current clients maintain copies of data, to make certain
operations (like diff) possible without contacting the server. Currently
there's no protocol that would allow the server to inform the client
that the data really commited *is not* the same data the client sent;
that would wreak havoc for the client. So it's not allowed.

At least, that's what I've understood the previous times the question
was asked :)
