A few questions:

How are you planning to make a commit without a working copy?
Are you sure you have no WC?

Why do you want to do this *during* the commit, regardless of the
warnings? Why ignore best - at least, advised - practice?

Why do you want to write in C? If ever there was a job for a script,
this is it: I would have thought Python, Perl, Ruby would all be
virtually as fast: after all, it's only going to be a few lines, and
would use virtually no memeory.
