[[Writing Plugins]] does sound better to me, so Michael, you can
rename it if you like :) I am okay with it otherwise, too.

Skippy's list and your lists (Owen, and Michael) are good. I created
one such list a long time ago, which must be outdated now. about
triaging the work, what about we put in some basic stuff about the
hooks, like perhaps a sentence for each hook and then build on it

Kaf does a great job with the Template_Tag pages, what we need is a
loving parent for the hooks :)

We ought to think about organizing hooks into section according to
their functions, too., about the same way Plugins are.
