No, there is no possibility to set a hook on checkouts.
On commit yes. But for my point of view, keep all these copy informations with hooks is a huge work (and is not a safe way at all)

I will repeat what I answered in an other thread on the 15.11.2006:

I realy can't understand why everybody seem to turn a blind eye to this feature hole in SVN...
