Well, depending on a hook name for this is broken-by-design anyway,
because there is no way for two independently written libraries to
be sure they don't choose conflicting hook names.  So the need for
a hook name has to go away.

It might work to use the address of the hook callback function as
a key for retrieving the associated void * pointer.  You'd need to
not register the same callback function more than once per object,
but from what I gather here you don't need to.


Or else have the library return a unique handle when registering hooks, rather than supplying a hook name.
