Different people might have different reasons. Perhaps nobody has
explained the exact problem. Perhaps nobody has put forward a
convincing argument as to why it is necessary. Or perhaps the
implementation costs outweigh the benefits.

That sounds like you assume Kristis Makris is talking about
post-commit output, but I'm not so sure. It could be a request to
make a hooks stdout output get back to the client. Or it could be a
request to make a hooks stderr output get back to the client even when
the hook succeeds. It could even be a request that the hooks output
should get back to the client while the hook is running.
