Was it only powerhooks that needed reversal, while all the other hooks
use a common order that the new powerhook order now conforms to?

How would it be to provide a new function for establishing powerhooks,
deprecate the old one, and provide the old one in a version that simply
enqueues a trivial argument-reversing wrapper for the passed hook
