If the name has a period, an error is thrown. If the type has a period, the data matrix in elgg.config.hooks ends up containing misshapen data that I'm guessing is causing bugs we haven't found.

fix(js): client-side hooks can now handle periods in hook names
Previously, using a hook name with a period would fail, and using a hook type
with a period would create an unexpected data structure within `elgg.config.hooks`.

This allows `elgg.provides()` to handle arbitrary names by giving them as an
array, and uses this new API to handle hook names/types consistently.

Fixes #9160
