When building dynamic systems, it is often the case that new behavior is needed which is not supported by the core architecture. One way to vary the behavior quickly is to provide well-defined variation points, called hook-points, in predefined places in the system where new behavior can be dynamically looked up and invoked at runtime when desired.
