That's right, but it's a general problem.  So I think it makes no
sense to try to solve it in this specific case only.

run-hooks could be extended to run two hooks, a "public" hook and a
"private" hook.  The arg would be the name of the public hook, and the
name of the corresponding private hook could be derived from the name
of the public hook.  (Running the private hook would be skipped if it
doesn't exist.)  What do people think?

Does one normally use defvar or defcustom to define the hook
variables?  If so, it might be useful to create a define-hook macro
that creates both variables.
A preposition is not a good thing to end a sentence with.
