I ran into this exact thing in the last 48 hours or so working on a 
patch for the block module and looking at block hooks in general.

A quick search shows that only block, forum and statistics core modules 
use 'configure' - so perhaps the rarity of its use kept it from being 

But knowing that you can add configuration options to a block would 
certainly be helpful for module contributors.
