Maybe you can enumerate what you think needs to change in mercurial, then once we have a plan in place it will be clearer who can do what.
The encode/decode hooks need to be passed the filename they are working on so you can have an ignore list, this is why I consider my method a hack since I am using a precommit hook to do conversion since I am able to find out which file I am working on and make sure it is not in an ignore list. There also needs to be a way to have required and version controlled extensions.
This weekend I plan on digging into Mercurials hook code and doing up a patch so the encode/decode hooks accept the filename they are working on in a backwards compatible way
An alternative would be to go one level deeper and have:
I like this, though maybe .hgextensions since it would contain versioned rules and the actual required extension. The extra sub directories are not really required IMHO, you just have a hgrc file that works the same as the local hgrc file except it only looks in the .hgextensions directory for the correct extension so for python we could have something like
[extensions] format_enforcer =
[ignore] *.sln= ...
[hooks] pretxncommit.crlf = python:format_enforcer.forbidcrlf pretxncommit.cr = python:format_enforcer.forbidcr
