OK, but the question is *how* does this get accomplished? The
Subversion source looks for .wsf files for pre-commit hooks and runs
them the same way it runs .exe, .bat and .cmd files. .WSF is listed in
the system environment variable %PATHEXT% but when I have
pre-commit.bat dump that variable to a text file, it is populated as I
expect (not blank).

Has anyone successfully invoked a .WSF hook script yet?
