[WISH] Hookable methods on/for modules
It is possible to integrate an hookable system to modify some code-parts without touching core-files or firmly integrated/shipped modules?

Here a special example:
I wan't to modify the packages module by an third-party module. The third-party module offers some special webspace functions but which should be provided with a limit (depending on the selected package).

The operator/admin should be able to change the values for this.

The problem is, that all modules offer no variable possibilities to make further changes. You are forced to modify/update the "core-module" (or a copy) to make changes here. Otherwise you only restricted with database changes. If the "core-module" will be updated by the system, all changes will be lost.

More in detail:
I've written an Let's Encrypt module. The operator/admin should be able to define in the hosting-packages, how much SSL certificates or Wildcard certificates can be created/used for the user.

Here the hook system would be used.

Maybe some have already worked with Wordpress. Here are actions and filters defined to modify various things. In this way, I would imagine the whole thing for Sentora and i hope that a similar process might be implemented in the near future.
