Because the hook may determine that the changeset should not be
commited. For example, the hook may determine that the SCM user is
trying to apply a changeset to a bug that has already been closed.
In general, a number of integration policies could apply logic that
confirms the check-in should be allowed. Examples of those verification
checks (performed by Scmbug) are at:
