How often is this subject to human failure, where someone forgets to set
up the hook and ends up committing changes with the old id?

And for arbitrary filters as well, which means we can just commit a
filter that does the appropriate $NetBSD$ munging if we don't like
touching $Id$ (which I think we don't, since sometimes we want the $Id$
of something that was imported).

So, problem solved, if we need to maintain this feature.
