Looking at the code, Dancer2 go ask every engine which hooks can be
created. However, it requires the engines to be created.

So you can't install a before_template hook before having setup the engine
template. So you need to have setting template => 'template_toolkit'; for
instance, before being able to create a template hook.

It's problematic with Plugins, that may want to create hooks *before* the
app has set a template engine for instance.
