No problem in doing that; I do that for my repositories' hooks

You want to have the same hook scripts for all repositories, but
still differentiate between the repositories in the hook scripts? I'm
not sure if there's a way to get the repository name from within a
hook script. You may have to write individual hook scripts which do
the things that you want to be unique for each repository, and then
from those you can call a common script to do the parts you want to
be the same across all repositories.
