By my count there are only about 44 packages that currently have apport-hooks.

AFAICT, here is the total number of source packages in Karmic:

Number of source packages in karmic:
  main: 3229
  restricted: 7
  universe: 12403
  multiverse: 520

Totaling 16,159 source packages. Opening new bugs on nearly all of
them seems to be too broad to be helpful. While I think what you're
after is a great goal, I think we better reach it by narrowing our
scope and focusing on specific packages where the hooks will be most
useful. As someone who would be willing to write hooks and incorporate
them into a package, looking at a bug list of over 16,000 wouldn't
give me any idea where to start.
