I'm just trying to make migration easier for presently incompatible 
clients. Maybe I'm not stretching my imagination hard enough to 
undersatnd how this is easy. I guess they'd have to call default hooks 
for native?

...and if you do want to mix native and cross-compatible? You'd override 
the defaults and write two sets of hooks?
