Odd looking code in wp-includes/update.php:

#files, and non existent too?!
add_action( 'load-plugins.php', 'wp_update_plugins' );
add_action( 'load-update.php', 'wp_update_plugins' );
#add_action(A,A); means what?
add_action( 'wp_update_plugins', 'wp_update_plugins' );
add_action( 'wp_update_themes', 'wp_update_themes' );

WordPress hooks and filters may have any name.

WordPress has a hook that runs on every page, "load-(admin page name)"

The fact a hook exists with the same name as the function doesnt matter either, the same happens in a few other locations too.

In the latter, Its mearly, hook the function wp_update_plugins' to the 'wp_update_plugins' hook (Which is called by wp-cron amongst others)

WordPress has a hook that runs on every admin page, "load-(current admin page name)"

Well OK but I would call hooks '...-hook' else there will be no end to confusion...
