Just being curious, but why use +monospace text+ here?  Most of the
new text use `monospace text literally` instead in this patch.

Perhaps ellipses are called for here?

    refs/heads/master 67890... refs/heads/foreign 12345...

 (the above abbreviates full 40-hexdigits for illustration purposes only)

s/standard error/& of the hook/; perhaps?  It is unclear who does
the writing and it can be misunderstood that git-push will write to
standard error upon seeing your hook that silently exits.

So to countermand this, you have to say --no-no-verify?  Wouldn't it
be more natural to introduce a --verify option that turns the bit
on, which automatically gives you --no-verify to turn it off?  A
bit in a flag word can be initialized to true before the flag word
is given to the parse_options() machinery to make the field default
to true, no?
