The start-commit is probably better than the pre-commit as there is no
point allowing the transaction to start.

The start-commit gets a username as $2 and the script could use that,
but invoking whoami is probably better for the purpose of blocking root.
For file:// access whoami and $2 will usually be the same but they could
be different if --username is used.
