Hook namespaceing — at Initial Version

We have a handy remove_action() function, but it works only if you can acquire the exact callback that was passed to add_action(), which is tricky when it comes to:

  • class instance methods, where you don't have access to the instance
  • PHP 5.3 closures

Introducing namespaces for hooks, similar to jQuery's namespaced events, we would not only take care of that problem, but also enable things like:

  • remove all callbacks to 'the_content' added by plugin X
  • remove all callbacks to the 'parse_query' action added by theme Y
