Followup to

This adds an additional hook before every cron event to allow for custom code to run before a cron hook

Use cases:

  • custom error checking (e.g. if a cron even has no callbacks,...)
  • load libraries/functions/classes that are only needed for a specific number of cron events and would otherwise slow down the site/cron - this hook allows you to handle multiple at once which is useful for e.g. dynamic hook names or for cases where you need to run it for a number of hooks (instead of adding 100 add_action with same callback)
