But this way for every distro the workaround needs to be created again instead 
of sharing the work/knowledge. I do not like this very much. Also I do not 
see much punishment in case there is a hook that only returns 1 instead of 
not beeing there at all. And also you already showed how easy it is to remove 
hooks that you may not need for your distro.
