One interesting test case for such a scripting hooks solution might be 
login restrictions.  There seem to be regular requests for the ability 
to setup arbitrarily complicated restrictions on users per IP, attempts 
per second, etc (and my logging interest is kind of related also).

Not trying to bump the item up any todo lists, just trying to chuck in 
some concrete ideas for actually testing a specific implementation...

I guess a substantially more performance orientated area that seems to 
get some interest would be various spam, expunge, delete ideas and the 
hooks needed for those.  These seem much more tricky to implement a 
scripting hook and still stay performant.  Again just ideas for real 
things people might want to do?
