The idea behind this appendix, I think, is that if someone is not sure
which hook to put a function onto, it's good to have a list of possible
hooks to use.

If we agree that that's its purpose, I think we should take out all the
hooks not related to general Emacs editing, e.g. `blink-paren-function',
`diary-*-hook', and `font-lock-beginning-of-syntax-function'.  This will
also make hooks.texi easier to maintain.

Appendix G seems pretty useless.  Appendix H can be kept, but we should
remove all the mode-specific keymaps, like `apropos-mode-map' and
`c-mode-map', and just state that each mode has an associated keymap.
