This wouldn't work for several reasons.

Making the repository behave differently on Windows than on Unix would

   a) Not solve this problem, since the server platform can be
      unrelated to the client platform(s), and

   b) Possibly cause new problems, again because the server platform
      can be unrelated to the client platform(s). (A Unix-only
      project may still have to use a repository on a Windows machine!)

In addition to the above, the Subversion distribution cannot reliably
install a pre-commit hook written in Perl, since it doesn't know
anything about what kind of Perl may or may not be installed on that
server. This is why hooks are best installed by local admins.
