Uhm....  Huh?

I'm talking about an API to make life easier for plugin developers to  
create plugins and for core developers to be able to innovate without  
getting in each other's way.

If the wordpress devs want to change how hooks work or something like  
that, then it won't matter as long as the register_plugin() API remains.

I wasn't talking about moving the hooks to different pages, though it  
does offer an entry point for someone to make that change if he/she  
wants.  I doubt the WordPress devs will do that though, don't you?
