I agree -- that's why I apologized for introducing that point.

I don't know why it's nil. However, I've discovered a bit more. It
seems that the problem is that my settings in my org-config file:

(setq org-enforce-todo-dependencies t)
(setq org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks 'invisible)
(setq org-enforce-todo-checkbox-dependencies t)

didn't prompt the required change in the value of org-blocker-hook.
With these lines in my org config file, the values of the three
variables are as expected, but the value of org-blocker-hook remains
nil, even if I stop and re-start emacs.

When I change the value of org-enforce-todo-dependencies using
customize, then the value of org-blocker-hook is what it should be, and
the dependencies work, even if I stop and re-start emacs.

So presumably something else in my config file is keeping
org-blocker-hook from being re-set?

I'd prefer not to use the customize function, so I'd hoped to set it in
my config file.

Thanks, and apologies for not sorting through this a bit more before
the initial post.
