I totally agree. When evaluating Subversion, I wrote a C# command-line
app to act as a pre-commit hook, and it worked like a charm. In my
case, it called the svn dos commands. I believe there is an API
available (did you use it, and if so, where can I get it?) that takes
out the shell overhead. With just a little extra work, I can make this
one executable configuratble to the extreme.
