That works fine. I've done that with my hooks and also with the
access control files in repos/conf. In fact, both are softlinks to a
working directory holding a checkout of an "administrative data"
repository, and that working directory is updated on every commit. So
I can administer Subversion from anywhere, and any changes
automatically take effect. The result is a bit like the auto-publish
behavior of CVSROOT in CVS, but more general.
