If I type that into my .git/config file then type "git config
hooks.showrev" I get "bad config file line 7 in .git/config" due to the
"\$".  I think the quoting in the comment in post-receive-email is
written as if it would be passed via the command line to "git config"; i.e.,

    git config hooks.showrev "t=%s; printf 'http://.../?id=%%s' \$t;
echo;echo; git show -C \$t; echo"

Granted, the docs don't make that clear.  See git-config(1) for the
details of the config file syntax.
