I'm not sure what you mean with the 90/10 percent here. All I'm asking
for is to have the option to *not* force a client to contact the
repository. Especially if the hook script there just returns a static
template or worse: nothing! If there's even a chance to avoid a repo
roundtrip, we should take it. There's absolutely no reason to make it
impossible for clients to optimize/work-around existing performance
issues...
