Don't Hack Core

You hear it all the time. Any CMS worth its developers' sweated salt has some system of hooks available to other developers to use for customization of their own projects. What the same CMS would have is an entire commando unit who refuses to use the hooks available because they don't understand them, refuse to rtfm, or simply feel like hacking core is the right, easier, or *whatever-they'll-never-try-to-upgrade-anyway* way to go... or something like that.

The bottom line is:
DON'T HACK IT. HOOK IT!
