The patch now implements "any command" triggers, and you have the
command tag to branch in the function if you need to.

We could solve that by providing an extension implementing command
triggers ready for use.  One that allows to easily switch on and off the
capability of running commands seems like a good candidate.

That said, with the current coding, you can't have both a instead of
trigger on "any command" and a before or after trigger on any given
command, so installing that extension would prevent you from any other
usage of command triggers.
