Two related thoughts I've had: 1) at some point it might be nice to
allow customization of the export options at the top of the export menu
(what currently allows for Body only/Visible only/etc), so that you
could add hooks or perhaps filters on a per-export basis. Also 2), it
could be nice to show, in the export dispatcher, which export hooks are
currently active. Filters, too, if that didn't turn out to be too much
real estate...
