Basically, neither network protocol contains provisions for marshalling
hook script output to the client. When an error occurs, the stderr data
can be stuffed into an error explanation, but if no error occurs, we
don't have a way to get the information back.

Extending either protocol should be relatively easy, but I'm not sure
whether we want the extra complexity. It's one thing to include
server-side hooks; it's another to start building them into an
application framework. (After sending output to the client, the next
feature request will be the ability to request additional input from the
client, and it goes from there.)
