'start-commit' runs before any files are transferred. It can't be used to
fail a commit based on any information that comes from the commit's tree
delta content payload.
'pre-commit' runs just before the commit transaction is promoted into a
revision, and can be used to block commits based on the content payload.
But only after the whole payload is transmitted to the server.
