Anything that supports prehooks and posthooks should manage it;
mercurial can, IIRC (and there's an example of something like it in the
hgrc manpage), and darcs should be able to once the next version is
released (it has prehooks, whereas the current version only has
posthooks). bzr, git, svn should all be able to manage it too.
