New submission from Erik Bray <erik.m.bray at gmail.com>:

I have a use case where I have a small library of setup_hook functions for various purposes that are used by multiple projects.  Some projects may want to use more than one of these setup_hooks.

I can certainly create a wrapper hook for each function that calls all the necessary hooks.  But that gets a little tedious and seems unnecessary.  In this use case it would be fine if I could just list a set of setup_hooks to be executed in sequence.

It is, of course, up the developer to be sure that none of these setup_hooks have conflicting actions.

As a temporary workaround I wrote a setup_hook called chain_setup_hooks.  I then looks for an option called "setup_hooks" which behaves as I've described.  This works fine, though I don't see why setup_hook shouldn't allow multiple values to begin with.
