We've talked about doing something like this (though more for config
than for hooks). But what the discussion always come down to is that
carrying a script like "" in the repository ends up being
the exact same amount of work for the developer as any git-blessed "OK,
trust these hooks" command.

And it's a lot more flexible. The writer of that script can touch hooks,
config, etc. They can base decisions about what values to use based on
data that Git otherwise wouldn't care about (e.g., uname). And they only
have to handle cases that the project cares about, whereas anything Git
does has to work everywhere.
