No, you should not modify the checkin on the server in a pre-commit hook.
There are ways to do it in a post-commit which involve automatically
checking out, modifying, checking in, but I would have to ask why you
think adding a simple string to a file would break your application.

For example, for C++ files:

for file in `find . -iname "*.cpp"`; do echo "// $Id$" >> ${file}; done;

Would do the job without changing the binaries one bit (for any sensible
interpretation of cpp file!) If you are still paranoid, then just wait
till you release. The $Id$ string in a source file isn't going to make a
big difference.
