Easiest would be client-side, writing a wrapper script around the
Subversion client to check the sizes before committing.

If you have a large userbase, with no control of what client is used,
you have to do it server-side. Do you need to filter on size only, or
size & file type?

BTW, when you refer to the book, please use the current version (1.5),
not the 1.0 manual - unless you're running SVN 1.0
