I don't see a need for that. At least, this doesn't feel part of the
"minimum feature set."

I don't think any existing solutions for hooks management handle this,
so it feels fine to push this part to the project. As you said, if
they wanted this, I'd expect `git config --add hook.pre-commit.command
lint.sh` where lint.sh does whatever cross-platform magic is required.

I wouldn't expect a lot of need for this anyway; I'd expect most hooks
to depend on tools that already work cross-platform (e.g. pylint) or
be hooks written in the programming environment of the project, so the
toolchain should already be in place to execute the hooks.
