Erik Huelsmann points out that the right way to do this is not by the
client's name, but by it's desires, e.g.:

   --xml ## send the template in xml
   --mime-type=blah ## send the template with blah mime-type
   --path-list-incomplete ## this path list is not complete

(The --path-list-incomplete would for TSVN and others to use.)

Again, this is a matter of shipping a good default hook script that
knows how to handle these things, so that they become standards.
