That's the beauty of putting debugging information in STDERR messages:
The hook won't print them when the hook succeeds, only when it fails.

In other words, you can pepper your script with STDERR messages and
leave them there. If the hook works, no one will be the wiser. If the
hook fails, you'll have information why it failed.
