Note that these /don't/ get run (as far as I can recall) for text
that we send ourselves, only for text that we receive.  Input
that we send to the server is sent with erc-send-input and
inserted with erc-display-msg (rather than erc-display-line).  As
such, the relevant hooks that are run are

At some point (many moons ago) I proposed dealing with input we
send in the exact same way (as far as buffer display went) as the
stuff we received from the remote server.  Unfortunately,
roundtoits never appeared at the time, and then I didn't really
think about it again.
