I could be wrong about the defaults for PATHEXT but the same objection also
applies to .VBS, .VBE, .JS, .JSE, .WSF all of which are configured to run
with WSCRIPT by default. It isn't entirely obvious to me that you couldn't
write a useful hook script using WSCRIPT: you can't write to stderr, but if
the hook doesn't need to generate any output maybe you could run it under

Anyway, my point is that if Subversion followed the same rules as the rest
of windows it would be much easier to write hook scripts in the scripting
language of your choice. Administrators of Windows-based repositories could
do what they'd expect to work and have it work: e.g. add .PY to pathext and
then just write the scripts in Python.
