The post-commit hook is synchronous; the Subversion client does not
give control back to the user until the post-commit hook has run, and
any other developer trying to commit at the same time will have to
wait. Doing any kind of lengthy operation in a post-commit hook,
where "lengthy" is probably anything more than a few seconds,
therefore becomes a great annoyance to the developers. We currently
update a working copy in our post-commit hook, and this is quite a
bad idea. :-)
