Instead of that, how about using a wrapper that stores the new
revision number in some given file and a pre-commit hook that
checks that this file contains the correct revision?

You can get the new revision number after a "svn up". There's a
race condition, but the pre-commit hook will check the number,
so that this method is safe.
