build(hooks): add Commitizen hook

This change adds Commitizen, an interactive tool for writing commit
messages, to the package.json file. This installs Commitizen within the
`node_modules` directory automatically when developers invoke
`npm install` from the root repository directory.

Additionally, this change adds a prepare-commit-msg Git hook which
invokes Commitizen prior to generation of the default commit message.
It may be exited with the standard ^C signal without terminating the
commit process for those who desperately want to avoid using it, but
otherwise should encourage developers to conform to the new commit style
without running into post-commit linting errors.
