Personally I run the svnlook changed command on the txn. This allows us to
see exactly what is being done on the changed files. If there is a delete
you can exit out and kill the commit. Here is the example written in

look_cmd = "svnlook changed -t %s %s" % (txn, path)

for file in os.popen(look_cmd).readlines():
     line = file.splitlines()).
     changedFile = str(line))).
     changed = changedFile[6:-2] #This will show you what file is being
     action = changedFile[2:3] #This will show you what action is
being taken on the file. This includes: add, delete, and update.

I later on block changes and deletes made only to tag directories.

The pre-commit hook will get two input parameters. The first is the
repostiory path, the second is the transaciton ID.
You need to pass this to svnlook:
svnlook diff c:\somerepository --transaction sometransactionId
This will allow you to watch the commit that's begin executed.
Have a look at the manual:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/index.html In this case you need
  but if you have not yet read the entire manual, you really should, it
will save you a lot of time and headaches!**** DISCLAIMER ****
