So, is the implication therefore that there would be resistance to
having some way of making a setting which *is* copied on clone, which
says that you can't commit in this repository unless you have the
following extensions enabled?

Or is the fact that it's only saying "you must have an extension
called win32text enabled" and not actually enabling code directly,
sufficiently secure to make it acceptable?
