Any sort of has_hook() function would be more for finding out what  
CORE hooks are available.  Yeah, people can put a function in a hook  
that doesn't return, or do something else to interfere with hook  
operation, but that's the risk you take when installing untested

Yes, I could update the patch to reflect WordPress 2.0, but it might  
be good to get some sort of indication that this is going to be  
considered for commit, before I do so.

Until then, I've updated http://wphooks.flatearth.org/ to show all  
the new 2.0 hooks, which are also in their own category.
