Hello ,

I've seen the discussion on rewriting transactions with svnadmin, so
it sounds like this scenario might be less esoteric in the future.

I just wanted to reiterate one thing that you might also want to think about:

This is not a problem for us, but it would be nice if one could
somehow perform authorization both before and after the precommit

This could be a configuration option, e.g.

  authorization_when = before_hooks | after_hooks | both

I understand that this is not a priority, but I thought I'd highlight it.
