Man was I slick when I wrote all this for MonoBook skin in my LocalSettings.php, for my
http://jidanni.org/comp/wiki/article-category.html sites,

  function JidanniBlueLinkCategoryPages($linker,$target,&$text,&$customAttribs,&$query,&$options){
    switch($target->mNamespace){case NS_CATEGORY:case NS_CATEGORY_TALK:$options[0]='known';}return true;}
  function JidanniDontInviteEdit(&$article,&$outputDone){if($article->getID()===0){
      switch($article->mTitle->getNamespace()){case NS_CATEGORY:case NS_CATEGORY_TALK:$outputDone=true;}}return true;}
  $wgHooks['ArticleViewHeader'][]='JidanniDontInviteEdit';#Bug 17630
  function JidanniLessRedContentActions($sktemplate,$content_actions){
    if(array_key_exists('talk', $content_actions)&&'new'==$content_actions['talk']['class']&&
    if(array_key_exists('nstab-category',$content_actions)&&'selected new'==$content_actions['nstab-category']['class']){
    return true;}
  $wgHooks['SkinTemplateTabs'][]='JidanniLessRedContentActions'; #Bug 17963

But now the years have passed and Vector Skin is now the default, and I
need to also make it work for Vector too but of course the moral of the
story is ... grandpa isn't a suitable Ph.D. candidate as he used to be.
So could someone tell me what I need to do to make these work in Vector?
Yes I know some flat list as been replaced by an array... but my brain
has become like a flat list... In the meanwhile my site looks bad by
default. Yes I could change the default skin back to Monobook but sooner
or later I need to rewrite these.
