Often times, I see people define a function to be used once in a hook.  If
they don’t do this, then it will be an anonymous function.  If the anonymous
function is modified, then the function can't be removed.  With a function
outside of the `add-hook` call, it looks messy.

Hook Helpers are a solution to this.  A "hook helper" is an anonymous, modifiable function created for the sole purpose of being attached to a hook.  This combines the two commonly used methods mentioned above.  The functions don't exist, so they don't get in the way of `C-h f`, but they can be removed or modified as needed.
