No, it is really a *Windows* limitation. The file association magic in Windows
is a feature of the CMD shell and Windows Explorer; it causes an interpreter to
be called to handle the associated file types.

The Subversion hook process is not executing in a shell and can only exec the
list of files that Windows itself (i.e. without an interpreter) can handle:

#ifdef WIN32
   /* For WIN32, we need to check with file name extension(s) added.

      As Windows Scripting Host (.wsf) files can accomodate (at least)
      JavaScript (.js) and VB Script (.vbs) code, extensions for the
      corresponding file types need not be enumerated explicitly. */
     ".exe", ".cmd", ".bat", ".wsf", /* ### Any other extensions? */

If you want to write hooks for Windows, you have to wrap them in a .cmd, .bat,
or .wsf file. NOTE: If you are using ActiveState's Perl, they include a small
utility <runperl.bat> which will call your Perl script from a batch file
