As I see now what I wanted to do is impossible since the hook is
executed on the svn server and has no idea from where both
commit and update request origin. So a hook script may be able
to update a specific working copy or webserver, but not any
working copy. Such a hook would have to be placed into the
working copies. Sorry for the noise.
