Plugin hook for displaying views gets deprecated in Elgg 1.8. Any workarounds

I just came across this entry while browsing the Elgg docs:

'display', 'view' //deprecated in 1.8!

at http://docs.elgg.org/wiki/What_plugin_hooks_are_available_in_the_Elgg_core%3F

I just started to build a plugin that relies heavily on this hook. The plugin is trying to provide front-end debugging for all displayed content, by having informative overlays on hovering over any part of the screen, displaying the view hierarchy for the current block. For this to work, the plugin really needs to get notified about each triggered view.

Is there another hook in 1.8 that will do essentially the same, or shall I just drop the whole idea before implementing something that is already deprecated?

Thanks,

András
