I think it can be done safely if the threshold for giving up is low. For example, only link to the ofiwg pre-commit hook if there is no pre-existing hook. Otherwise, dump a warning/info message and do nothing. The user will just have to be surprised when their code is rejected at the server, and we can provide the same help text at that time as a polite "suggestion". :)
