Hook to limit file size

As subversion administrator here, I've recently been bitten by a user
committing a 600MB file to subversion. As there's no "svn obliterate"
command, that required a complete repo dump, edit, reload to fix.

I'd like to ensure that sort of thing doesn't happen again by defining a
hook script that prevents addition of files over a certain size (eg
1MB). I've looked at the hook scripts in contrib, and the svnlook
command, but can't see any easy way to determine the size of the
committed data.

Is counting the chars in "svnlook diff" the only way to do this?
