Nope, Subversion doesn't keep track of client side information (like
checked out working copies) on the server, it's part of why it can
scale up to many users.

Unfortunately, it's not really a trivial thing to do. First, there is
no pre-checkout hook. Second, checkouts look an awful lot like
exports, updates, etc, so it's not really easy to say with any degree
of certainty from the server side that any given operation was or
wasn't a checkout.
