Sure. The hook script given above runs "$SVNLOOK" changed -t "$TXN"
"$REPOS" and looks at the second word (presumably intended to be the
path to the file, though this will fail if the path to the file ever
contains spaces). You would need to add code to look at the first
character of the response from svnlook changed rather than throwing
it away like the script does. The first character will be "A" if a
file is added (which you want to allow) and "M" if a file is modified
(which you want to deny). You can also handle "D" (deleted) in any
way you choose.
