It would be nice if the core could have a function to return an array  
of all hooks (default + extra ones registered by plugins).  Your  
plugin may be the only one now that provides role management  
capability, but that might not be the case in the future.  There  
should be a way for plugins to register their capabilities so that  
whatever role manager is being used can access them.  I'm fine with  
taking the option_name and hook that you're using and moving them  
into core.
