I do not understand why hook registration and argument processing are
being conflated. Why not define a new hook called "process arguments" or
something? The hook could be defined as MPM-specific, too (e.g. only MPM
modules should see/respond to the thing)

Run the hook before the pre-config hook.

Hmm. I'd also be interested in learning how this is different from the
pre-config hook. The presence of the process_rec?

For now: -1 (I don't like the reuse of register_hooks for this, and it
appears that may be solved w/ a new hook)
