Hmm, without looking at the extension I'm still undecided if it makes sense to 
document hooks at all.

My cons against documenting hooks:

   - If you know where you want to hook in you easily find the hook
   - You can search the core for "hook" and find all hooks
   - If you just use a hook you find in the documentation you might break
     something because you haven't studied the exact implications of the
     surrounding code (fx. in TCEmain there are some dangerous places)

What do you think?
