It depends greatly on the access control methods. pre-commit scripts,
svnserve.conf for svn:// repositories,
/etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf for the HTTPS based RPM's,,
filesystem access based control, and all sorts of complex local setups
prevent being able to do a simple "pre-test this" operation.
