how to write pre-lock hook to enforce the use of --force

I have this problem I can't get my head around.

I need to enforce the locking of few files. I have set the
svn:needs-lock property and I do check whether these files are locked in
the pre-commit hook.

My problem is that I would like developers to steal the lock ONLY if
they use the --force option. In this case I would also like to send an
email to the previous lock owner to say that the lock has been stolen.

I can't seem to find how to check whether the --force option has been
used in the pre-lock hooks. Does anybody have any idea about this?
