Actually, changing a file in a commit hook script (which you would need
to do to implement a keyword replacement type thing) is a /really bad
idea/, and would break many things. The client's working copy would
become out of date compared to the version of the file in the
repository, and there is no way for the change to get sent back to the
client. I believe there are some warnings to this effect in the pre
commit hook template.
