[wp-hackers] Widget Save hook

Depends on what you need.  As John said there's update() method of widget class.

There's 'admin_init' with $_POST['action']='save-widget'

There's 'check_ajax_referer' with an $arg of 'save-sidebar-widgets' (yes, it would be a hack)

Lastly (of note) there's 'widget_update_callback' with the new values as $arg (not sure when else it's called.)

There may be more but that's a start...
