I would guess that scripts can be put anywhere, I would probably just
put them in the HookDir (matching *.{hook,sh} files).

But why would anyone use the /usr/share/alpm/hooks.local directory at
all? It doesn't appear to be used by default -- I guess you could add a
HookDir in pacman.conf, but that shouldn't be depended on by packages...

It looks like a *personal* choice for user/admin hooks.
