I have to admit that I have been bitten by not always remembering to
set a run-posthook.  If I specify a posthook, I expect it to run.

I remember, also, being pleasantly surprised by the availability of
prompt-posthook.  If there is some command that I sometimes want to
run, but often not, it adds a nice interactive nature to the posthook.
I do not have to remember to supply a no-posthook on the command-line,
instead I am prompted.

I would recommend making run-posthook the default, or eliminating it.

I would recommend keeping prompt-posthook as an option.
