It certainly was not and I'm not sure how this would work for an
external plugin. So far I did not see any hooks where a custom plugin
could realize that functionality. (Not saying it does not exist, but I
could not find it). So if there is some other "Custom" directory like
"PVE/Storage/Custom", then it would be easy. But I really do not intend
to modify/divert existing files in the proxmox packages (besides what we
already did to get our plugin to Custom). Modifying files that don't
belong to you is bad style from a packaging perspective and we had our
fair share of "political discussions" ;-). Actually, I also would not be
happy if someone diverts files in our packages...

So, if there is a non-intrusive way to expose that information I did not
find so far, fine. Otherwise I don't see that happen, sorry.
