documentation on fixing broken themes. A plugin that requires extra, 
non-standard hooks must document the procedure for adding those hooks to a 

The question of what SHOULD be a standard hooks will always be a balance 
between what the plugin authors WANT (everything) and how far the theme 
authors are willing to go. Either way, it's not a core issue.

If you're REALLY adamant about filtering every little thing, use the output 
buffer and what hooks you have available. Somebody is always going to echo 
something you wanted to filter.
