I admire John's many accomplishments and value his membership in the Org
mode community.

Is the hook he is requesting a difficult thing to implement?  Would it
be possible to describe the customization variable in a "Super User"
section that is clearly not for the faint at heart?

I'm not suggesting anyone should implement a hook or create a
customization variable, I'm just curious (and unable to figure out
answers on my own).

All the best,
