Ahem, replying to myself. You mean the "keyword" that is in the file
itself and not a meta-data property. Didn't get two coffees into me,

This method makes the strong assumption that developers will not have
files with the string "nocommit" already committed to the repository.
That's the nature of the diff command.

Seems like it should work from the bash end, but you need to echo your
message to STDERR for the client to see it upon rejection.
