I'm speaking solely for myself, but I wouldn't want to see this
complexity incorporated into our servers right now. Like you said, no
one's been clamoring for it, and Perl, Python, or other scripting
language hook scripts are already portable across operating systems.
(Remember, you don't have to use shell language for hooks.)
