Hooks for queries helper
|Target version:||Candidate for next major release|
Plugin developers very often overwrite queries helper column_value and column_content.
The problem is, that there two ways to overwrite it: prepend and alias_method. There is a conflict if one plugin uses prepend and the other plugin uses alias_method for the same method.
More and more plugins do not work together because of this reason. Because of this, there should be a better way to solve this wish to overwrite.
I added a patch to introduce two hooks, which could be used by plugin develops. With this approach there is no need for overwriting this method anymore.

Hi Go MAEDA
Can anything be done to bring forward the integration of this patch? This has the potential to solve a fairly sizable problem hampering plugin developers, and users of those plugins alike.
Quickly perusing what is listed in Candidate for next major release and it seems like many enhancements simply go there to die, numerous patches are 5+ years old. Please do reconsider whether this solution can be safely implemented within the next minor release.
