If this is a package in GNU ELPA, shouldn't its thingies have a
package prefix?

IOW, shouldn't `define(-mode)-hook-helper' be called something like
`hkhlp-define(-mode)-hook-helper'?

I'm not saying it should, as the rules for GNU ELPA packages are not
clear to me.  But if its packages follow the general rule then they
should have a prefix, no?

(And if they did have a pkg prefix then no, these macros would
presumably not be highlighted by default.)
