That's not entirely true. Subversion is responsible for providing the
hooks so users can be informed of these things, and we've done that.
It's called a post-commit hook. When you set it up to perform commit
mails, users will be notified. It's just less intrusive than giving
them an error on the command line.

Personally, I agree with Ben... I see nothing wrong with the current way
things work.
