Huh?  No, it's 3 or 4 seconds that it blinks...

It's not encouraging them to *randomly* pick numbers.  The people you're
talking about are distro packagers.  They are always going to have to
consider the order that hooks run in, whenever they add hooks.  The same
is true if, for some reason, a user wants to add his own hooks.

One has really got to be mindful of the hook order, or else one is going
to get results that weren't as expected.  That's _why_ the ordering
mechanism is so prominent.

That being said, there are really very few places where one needs to do
something at two different spots in the process.  So I don't think it's
worth worrying about either way.
