For my 2p worth, I don't like seeing hooks called like this.  Particular those 
that come as part of the standard installation.

I call mine by installing little scripts like this (on Debian):

  # stored as $GIT_WORK_DIR/.git/hooks/post-receive-email
  exec /bin/sh /usr/share/git-core/contrib/hooks/post-receive-email

This means I don't have to make the sample script executable, it gets upgraded 
automatically as git gets upgraded, and the interpreter is easily changed by 
changing a file in my work directory, rather than altering a packaged file.

I'd prefer to see the /usr/share/git-core/templates/hooks/ using a similar 
technique, as to my mind, installing a full copy of the sample script in every 
new repository is wasteful and leaves you with potentially out-of-date scripts 
when you update git.
