Would be nice to have a flag to disable calling scripts (if only for
debugging purposes!).

BTW, the situation I was thinking of was that some precommit checks would be
done, and in exceptional circumstances the user would want to force the
commit to happen even though the trigger'd script said abo the commit.

Somehow I got hit by a bolt of inspiration and think I've found a
workaround.... but, umm... are user variables (-S) accessible by the
trigger scripts ... I couldn't see any sign of them in info_trigger :-(
