Subversion pre-commit hook script - Python files: prevent tabs, verify svn properties

Here's a precommit hook script I've modified from one I've used before.  I hope it comes in handy.  I'm going to try to submit it to the dev group of subversion itself for inclusion in the contrib/hook-scripts directory.

#!/bin/env python

    pre-commit hook script that does several things:
    * prevents committing any python file containing a tab character.
    * checks if there are tabs in the source file and warns if so;
    * aborts if incorrect properties of eol-style and keywords 'id'.
