You could do the same thing "mv $hook $hook.disabled" but it involves
retraining your fingers. I kind of agree that the existing system of
respecting the executable bit is nice, though: it does what you told it
to do, and a misconfiguration is your problem, not the system's. It's
perhaps worth changing if people frequently get the executable-bit thing
wrong, but I don't know whether they do or not.

I kind of feel like we had a similar discussion around items in PATH,
but I don't remember how it resolved.
