Sounds like you're on the right track. Yes, you should be able to
make the hooks directory (and config directory, if you want) a
working copy from a repository. When you make changes, you can commit
right from there. If people make changes elsewhere and you want them
automatically in place on the server, your post-commit hook can do an
"svn up" of the working copy(ies). I'm guessing the reason Subversion
doesn't directly provide this is that it's pretty easy to set up
yourself.
