I wasn't planning on changing the interface, beyond a few hooks that
I'd like to add extra parameters to. I was going to mechanically
convert the macros to functions, keeping the same names, args, and
IMHO changing the API is a separate issue.
When I said "design the target structure" I meant organizing the hooks
into reasonable categories, not changing the hooks themselves.
