Subversion hooks directory as a Symbolic link.

Hi All,

I am looking for feedback on your thought in doing the following.

1. Move hooks directory in the repository to outside the repository
   eg. mv /repos/Enterprise/Common/hooks /repos/hooks
2. put a symbolic link in the /repos/Enterprise/Common
   eg. ln -s /repos/hooks /repos/Enterprise/Common

The reason I want to do this is because I will have multiple
repositories and need to maintain the same hooks scripts across all

I know I am modifying the structure of Subversion.

The Alternative is to move only the files out of the hooks directory and
create a symbolic link to the files. The only draw back in this, is
that, every file added in the external directory would have to be
manually sym-linked into every repository.

Your response will be gratefully appreciated, even if you chew me for
hacking subversion.
At least I will be able to implement subversion the correct way and
_not_ my way :)
