I like this idea because the hook script can do interesting things with
the list of modified files. For instance, the Subversion project could
have a log template which looks like:

  * subversion/libsvn_foo/bar.c ():
  * subversion/libsvn_foo/baz.c ():

Any log template mechanism where the server transmits static data to the
client is inherently limited in this respect, because can't have the
server telling the client to execute code (barring the addition of a
sandboxed virtual interpreter to the client).
