I must admit I've not actually looked at John's code.

However, my thoughts (based on your comments) are as follows:

add_user should be called as well as add_domain when a new domain is
created - these are separate actions that happen to both occur when you
first create a domain.

I don't really have a problem with both mod_user and add_user triggering
in an add_user operation. What happens to cause mod_user to trigger as
well as add_user? I guess the user is added and then modified - the
password is set, perhaps? BUt I would need to look at the code to see
what actually happens. Bottom line; If the user is being added and then
modified then it makes sense to have both hooks triggered.

Why do you want to change this?

What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Does there need to be a "del_alias_domin" hook? How about a mod_domain,
or mod_alias_domain (not sure if these two would be necessary)?

What's the difference between valias_remove and valias_delete ?

Does there need to be a valias_mod?

Why is this not add_valias, del_valias? (to make it the same as the
user/domain hooks) ?
