Not possible in ejabberd right now.

I don't know about such libraries, do you know their names and homepages?

The idea looks interesting, or at least promising. I opened a ticket:
  Distributed Hooks

I implemented the feature so you can experiment with the idea.
I also wrote some example code in erlang, and a small guide to use it.
See the patch attached in the ticket.
It's built for ejabberd trunk, but maybe also works for 2.0.x and 2.0.2.

If you finally get some results, please share your findings! :)
Or if you reject the idea after some investigation, please also
comment here why (efficiency/stability/...).
