Sure it'd be more convenient for you. But there are loads of possible
combinations, and the idea of what constitutes unwanted files is
hugely variable to each user. We don't really want to end up
supporting a million different ways to do this, and the hooks
interface provides a reasonable method for rejecting commits with
unwanted contents.
