Hi Hartmut,
that sounds perfect.

When passing the line, i think, possible comments should be stripped
to prevent problems when this line is stripped from the output. The
on_illformed hook should also have a boolean return value signaling to
pass the line to the output or to strip it (similar to other hooks).
