I mean in the course of adjusting their .emacs, they might use a lot
of eval-last-sexp, eval-region, etc., upon which their hooks just grow
and grow, with results perhaps OK, but not necessarily the same as
what will be when they start a fresh emacs the next day.

So mention that problem, and mention that somebody else might be
tampering with their hooks beyond the bounds of their .emacs file[?!]
so that is why they should still use add-hook... or maybe if they only
adjust the hook in one spot in their .emacs, they can use setq hook.
