No.  loginfo only gets called once per directory, reguardless of the
number of files being committed in that directory and the lookup is
strictly by directory name.  If you don't want to log commits of a
particular file, you'll have to do that in the loginfo script (and
decide what to do when someone commits other files in the same directory
at the same time).
