Pre-commit hook to restrict mkdir

I'm new to subversion so I appoligize in advance for any stupid newbie questions.

I'd like to restrict my users from creating top-level directories. After looking
through the docs and FAQ's it appears that the best way would be to create a
pre-commit hook. Am I on the right path or is there a better way? The Apache
mod_dav_svn module would fit the bill but clients will be using command-line.

I've done some poking around with the pre-commit script however I'm having some
trouble figuring it all out.

The command 'svn mkdir file:///repos/projectA -m "make initial project dir"
generates the following hook variables:

***START pre-commit script. TXN=y REPOS=/repos
author: caprio
changed: A projectA/
dirs-changed: /
***END pre-commit script

If dirs-changed = "/" and changed: = "A" would I be correct in interpreting that
user wishes to create 'projectA' in the repos root dir?

Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated.
