Replacing template hooks by templates override

I've toyed a bit with template hooks, and I must say I'm not so very fond of it.

The thing I dislike is that you have to modify templates. That is to say that some part of the plugin behavior is outside of the plugin.

I think it'd be a way better idea to add an overriding system for plugins, in that order
Base templates -> themes -> plugins (plugins win all the time).

That said, it can be a good idea to add hooks in some places you'd expect to be modified often (in the forms before the submit, at the end of media data's template...)

Actually this already works exactly as you said with base templates -> themes -> plugins. (I think themes actually might get priority, I don't remember, one of them does).

The template hooks is a *new feature* that allows you to not have to do that in common places, so that multiple plugins can edit things at the same time.

So basically, this is already a feature! I can walk you through how to do it on IRC.
