Err. I don't think that's a correct statement. The hook operates on
the changeset, not on your local working copy.

If the upstream repo has a hook which rejects everything and those
hooks are cloneable, then the linux/unix users can clone the hooks to
(and will eventually have to because someone will stop offering to
push changesets which the upstream repository rejects).
