Why should we provide a default for a hook that we're providing to the  
distributions? If we do that, then that basically says "we'll maintain  
this for you" to the distributions when that's not our responsibility.  
If you're concerned about running svn but not getting this feature,  
then you could just symlink your distro's installed installdebuginfo  
script into your svn install directory path where it needs to go, or  
write your own and keep it in a safe place.
