Do you want to abort the checkin if there is something wrong, or just
capture the transaction?  Where I last worked, I was going to implement
verifymsg to force people to put PR numbers (we used Gnats for error
tracking) in the log messages, but no more checking than that.

The hooks are set up in a somewhat ad hoc manner.  You could set up
loginfo to get the file list, the new revision numbers, and the
log message, and enter that into the database.  IIRC, loginfo programs
are run once per directory, not once per commit, so there will be
multiple entries for larger commits, but I don't know that that's
going to be a problem.
