[wp-hackers] substitutes for hook wp_footer ?

Can't do it that way. What about feeds? They don't call the wp_footer.

I think that you probably shouldn't try to compensate for bad theme design.

On the other hand, if you have a config screen, you could search the
currently active theme's footer.php file for the "wp_footer" text and
warn the user if the theme doesn't have it. Bit of a long way to go,
but it would work.
