Actually, the reason that got dropped is because distros should just  
submit their hooks for inclusion or just drop/overwrite the upstream  
ones they do not want. The hooks we include are really just supposed  
to provide sane defaults, and if you have saner defaults we would like  
to incorporate them.

It depends on the hook. We do not really want app or service specific  
hooks - those should be pushed ro the app upstream (pm-utils provides  
pkgconfig support, so adding support for pm-utils in other apps should  
be fairly simple). I am interested in system level hooks, if they can  
be written in a distro agnostic fashion. README.distributions in the  
pm-utils tarball has more info.
