We could satisfy a whole class of wishes by supporting
user-wide/system-wide git hooks like

    ~/.githooks/{pre,post}-clone     /etc/githooks/{pre,post}-clone
    ~/.githooks/{pre,post}-init      /etc/githooks/{pre,post}-init

I suppose similar functionality could be implemented via git aliases,
but hook scripts are easier to install and share.
