Server-driven configuration control?

From: Matt England <mengland_at_mengland.net>

I would like to see the Subversion system one day support server-side
configuration management of repo-wide activities. ie, I don't want to have
to force, manual, client-side changes (as per things like the "Standardize
on ASCII type: dos2unix pre-commit hook?" thread started here:
<http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2006-03/0516.shtml>, some text of which
is commented below) in order to enforce repo-wide policies like standard
ASCII formats, etc.

Is this is Subversions future, however far out it may be?
