Bad idea. The repository should store exactly what it is given, it should
not modify anything (the only exception being the well-documented keywords
such as $Id$). Your commitinfo script should, instead, simply check the
formatting and issue an error code - thereby aborting the commit - if the
formatting is wrong.
