The Examples project only covers core APIs, otherwise things would just get
out of control. If I'm not mistaken the discussion here is about a CCK

And API module can only pick up hooks when they're documented in api.php
files; CCK didn't quite get that done. Field module in D7 is better,
although there's still lots of WTF in there.
