That is an excellent suggestion, but as has been noted in other
replies, not all modules follow this suggestion. For instance, besides
the FileField example in the original post in this thread, there was a
problem with hook_diff() from the Diff module conflicting with an
unrelated function named location_diff() in the Location module, about
a year ago.

Those sites will only help you find contrib hook documentation if the
module developers have created API documentation headers/files for
their hooks. Most do not bother.
