The dialog isn't shown yet, but it is already initialized. Only the
status of all files isn't fetched yet so you can only change the files
in that hook script. Everything else is not changeable by the hook script.

I don't think it's possible to achieve what you want with a hook script.
Or any other way I can think of, sorry.
