I like the idea of an auto-installed pre-commit hook, but there simply may be too much variety out there to do it safely.

E.g., I'll likely want to run my own hooks *and* the libfabric hook.  So I'll likely just have my existing hook call contrib/awesome-git-precommit-hook (or whatever) at the end.

I can't think of a sane, safe way to automatically install the hook offhand that isn't horrendously complicated (and likely fragile).  Perhaps we should lobby for git to accept .d-style directories for hooks.  :-)
