No. My question is WHY?
I can see that the preprocess functions are called for theme files and
not for functions.
I think it would be useful for everything. eg, quote (from http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme)
For example, if a module named "foo" wanted to alter the $submitted
variable for the hook "node" a preprocess function of
foo_preprocess_node() can be created to intercept and alter the variable
That seems like pretty useful functionality regardless of whether the
content is generated by a function or a template file.
Another email informing me about "hook_theme_registry_alter" was very
useful - thanks.
