I think that for index hooks, this works out fine.  And if we want,
we can spec it to return any hook that implements the given class.

OTOH, I'm starting to think that this may actually be a bit too complex

something that enumerates all vobs in a vobset, since we do not need
to add the vobs to the index at the same time as they are added to the
