Pre-commit hooks and access to files

I'm investigating whether it's possible to modify the contents of
files in pre-commit hooks (such as inserting author's names and
revision numbers in class comments, etc).

The docs for pre-commit hooks say that modification of the
contents of a transaction are prohibited. Would this preclude me
from doing this?

If not, how would I get a handle of the file contents to modify -
svnlook doesn't seem to do this.

I understand that people have strong opinions on this, but I'm
investigating whether it's possible, the advisabitlity of doing so
is another conversation.

Thanks in advance...

Douglas Bullard
