You should not modify the contents of a commit via hook. By doing so,
the committer's working copy is immediately rendered out of date. This
has been rehashed a lot on this mailing list.

Last Revision date/time/revision number is already available via
keywords. See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.advanced.props.special.keywords.html

"History" will not be made available as an SVN keyword ever, most
likely. See http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#log-in-source

Write yourself a little script that creates the repository, then
copies the hooks from a "template" instead of manually running
svnadmin create.
