I'm not suggesting it's _always_ easier, I am saying that it sometimes 


1) You have multiple svn servers across multiple sites with multiple 
projects but hosted on common hardware.  You want no overlap between 
projects and/or sites.

2) You want hook scripts to do radically different things: if/then/else 
clauses add complication and obfuscation when having two different hook 
scripts is more straight forward.

3) You delegate reponsbility for svn servers.  You don't want Admin A 
messing with Project B's setup in any way.
