I propose adding a hook that is run after git reset.

My personal use case for that is that I am indexing my checkouts using
global (a tool similar to ctags, cscope, ...)  and I really like that
index to be up2date all the time. I can catch most cases where the work
tree changes from git via the post-checkout, post-merge, post-rewrite
hooks. The only frequent case I don't know how to trigger a reindex is
git reset --hard.
Another related usecases I can imagine is people wanting to check that
there is nothing important/irrecoverable in the current checkout before
resetting it, but that would obviously be a pre-reset hook.

Any opinions about the feature before I start writing a patch?
