If each only needs to read a few lines from stdin, they can do so in
order. If two hooks need to read till the end of stdin, they are
incompatible. If we support some sort of hook signature, we could warn
the user when they combine the two. If not, the second's failing
(because stdin is already closed) may show the incompatibility. "git
hook" should support dry-run mode to test out new combinations.

One failed hook fails the commit and stops the remaining from
executing. You can skip the hook if you want with --exclude-hooks.
