Isn't Owen's hook set up to check for commit messages of the form:
  Merge branch.*of (git|ssh)://.*
If the user has a conflict after doing a 'git pull', fixes the
conflict, and then commits, they'll get a chance to edit the commit
message (which some will do and not provide any hint that the commit
was done for merging purposes), and thus bypass this check.
