No, notyet.  But tonight.

Sounds sensible.  The hook would probably want a handy access to
the commit object as well to catch:

     - the author name may be spelled wrong or has funky
       B-encodings still left.

     - some people might want to even run spellchecker on the
       commit message.

     - lack of S-O-B line.
