That is an idea that is worth exploring. The amount of work that is
needed is similar to the double underscore thing.

It has an advantage where hook means hook. We often get newbie
developers confused on what a hook is in the first place. This can
help with the learning curve (e.g. grep/search all modules for _hook_
to see what hooks get fired, ...etc.)
