Description

Problem: it’s pretty common (even if it’s not polite) for plugins to use a class constructor to hook their own public methods into things, but doing so makes it near-impossible to unhook procedurally.

Solution: I just ran across the following function on StackExchange, and imagined something similar could be quite useful to have globally available:

It’s gnarly, but it works, and I think having WordPress core include this functionality makes more sense than having plugin authors all include their own version of it.
