I think Karl was offering a rebuttal to "won't be used by much repo
admins", not talking about timing costs of using the hook.

He points out that most admins actually go through extra efforts to
turn on the pre-revprop-change hook (because the default state is to
disallow that functionality), so there's no reason to believe they
wouldn't go through similar extra efforts to turn on the
pre-commit-gimme-a-funky-template hook. Therefore, he thinks the new
hook *will* be used by "much repo admins".
