 While there was never a public API for it, the specifics of implementation
 had previously allowed to access current priority within a hook via `key(
 $wp_filter[ current_filter() ] )`.

 This seems to no longer be a case with 4.7 implementation based on
 `WP_Hook` which both changes what this expression returns (string
 `callbacks`) and seems to hide priority data in private property.

 Given that implementation both breaks existing way to do it and doesn't
 open a new way to it breaks all code that needs access to current priority
 state without alternative.
