Hooks are not interactive. start-* and pre-* hooks can send an error
message and a status code back to the client on failure. AFAIK post-*
hooks cannot interact with the client at all.

The only relevant issue I can find:


That's not about interactivity of hooks, though; it's just about
allowing all hooks to report errors or status messages back to the
client. It's been open for close to five years, but at least it's
being worked on periodically.
