Client-side hook scripts have bad security implications; they allow the
server to tell the client to do anything at all, when the user was
really only interested in letting the server feed it updates.

We could provide a sandboxed language interpreter with a defined set of
user-visible primitives to overcome that problem, but that's way too
much complexity for the benefit.
