I do not say it is a direct problem when you ask for lots of data
and only pick a single value where the rest is discarded.
I just wonder if it is usefull. Useless things are in my book
not directly problems, but maybe my english is not good enough.

If I under stand the implication of a RUNALL it will run all functions
registered in the HOOK. I guess if a value is found you can stop.
Maybe I just don't understand the HOOK part here.

Would a simple mechanism as a optional function not be better.
The module that has management data to provide registers this
function in a generic form and function registration
dedicated for the management data.
