The script itself doesn't require admin privs, but installing it might.
I'm not really much of an svn user/administrator so I don't know for
sure. Obviously someone would have to 'flip the switch' by putting the
script into the correct directory.

Now that I think about it, there is a bit of a wrinkle. Apache svn is
shared by all of the apache projects, so the same set of hooks is used
for them all. Obviously our hook could check the affected file path
before examining the changelog, but I don't know if that would be good

I think it is something that would be useful, particularly because I'm
the one always goofing up the changelogs.
