I meant that we could add something the pre-commit hook could see in Subversion that would create an exception for a whole directory, rather than something inside the hook itself. Perhaps a specially named file, or a Subversion attribute on a specially named file, or something more clever. If Subversion had attributes on directories, it could be that.

Ah, that’s a big blocker if lots of people are using git-svn — I certainly use it.
