To rephrase this: the script would recreate the contents pages on
the committing working copy, but not do an svn update.

How to do this? As far as I can see

A) the hook would have to know all working copies on the LAN;
B) all working copies would have to be on shared drives/partitions;
C) all relevant machines would have to be available on the LAN any
time anyone commits.

Especially the latter cannot be guaranteed. Just as folks will start
the day with an update, but not a commit ...
