Couldn't you run a grep on an svn stat prior to commiting?

If there are any D's, M's, or A's then you will have a commit.

No, I haven't. But the thing is that subversion does not say anything or
return something else than 0. My problem is that if I have a commit in a
script I would like to know whether it was an empty commit or not. Also,
if a user does a commit the only way for them to know that something was
actually committed is whether they have a new revision or not. However,
we know users, and in case they don't have a new revision, I know
already that they would complain that they didn't have any message to
tell them they actually didn't commit anything.

You say it's the client. Does not mean that the server is not queried at
