The code is documented - but you didn't see it. The example was pretty
self-explanatory if you know the existing hooking system.

What it does is provide type-safe hooks (i.e. just like ordinary hooks)
that can be hooked even if the exporter of the hook isn't linked in
(unlike ordinary hooks) - in which case the hooks simply aren't called.
