Seems a reasonable objective - it'll certainly curtail (indeed, reverse)
the ongoing proliferation of little subsystem-specific hooks all over the
core code, will allow us to remove some #includes from core code and should
permit some more things to be loaded as modules.

But I do wonder if it would have been better to have separate chains for
WATCH_TASK_EXIT. That would reduce the number of elements which need to be
traversed at each event and would eliminate the need for demultiplexing at
each handler.
