Funny, that you ask for hooks. I removed that from the script because it uses 
run-parts which is only available on Debian based systems. But if we need it, 
I could add a package for run-parts.

In addition to this we could think about to adjust other packages to use this 
certificates, too. ATM some packages come with their own bundle.

From the man page it would do the following:

\fBupdate-ca-certificates\fP invokes
\fBrun-parts\fP on /etc/ca-certificates/update.d and calls each hook with
a list of certificates: those added are prefixed with a +, those removed are
prefixed with a -.
