Yes the 'hook' concept in Emacs Lisp requires a function to explicitly
run those hooks, i.e. hooks are only available if the person writing
a routine makes them available.
However, Emacs Lisp also has 'defadvice' which allows you to attach
arbitrary code to an existing function in different ways. I must admit
that whole advice thing strikes me as a little insane; it's probably
quite powerful though.
