Hooks can always be changed after the conversion is live.

I guess this is something to consider for any cleaner upstream support in 
the hooks for custom branch namespaces.

Right now the configuration is for all commits to appear on the mailing 
list, just as all SVN commits do.  I think user namespace commits are 
interesting to see, but we can set to refs/users/ in the 
hook configuration if we don't want them to appear on the list - that 
configuration option already exists. 
documents the available configuration options.
