I have used this approach (svn update in post-commit) for more than a
year now, and it works just fine. I have the hooks in the same repo as
they run on though.

Usually I test commits to the path checked out in the hooks dir by
running on a (cut-down) copy of the database before I commit them.

I checkout the hooks directory using file:// to the repo, so if I really
need to mock around with them "live", I can just stop the server and
edit directly on the checked out copy, do tests and then commit the
fixed version. I have only done this once, after an upgrade when the
python-bindings changed interface some 1/2 year or so ago.
