You can add the svn:executeable property any time to any file that
should be executable. When you do a checkout the next time, the
executable bit will automatically be set. No need for chmod.

You can't have a pre-commit hook make any changes, even add a property
to a file. However, your pre-commit hook script can reject a commit if
it contains files that should be executable, but don't have
svn:executable on them.

In fact, that's exactly what my pre-commit hook script does. After one
or two rejections, people will set the autoprops to put svn:executable
on files that should be executable.
