Comment (by welcher):

 @westonruter I like the idea of the `unregister` method coupled with a
 `do_action( 'widget_unregistered' )` whenever a widget is unregistered.

 Adding a `WP_Wiget:: register()` method is also a great idea, however, I
 don't think we can assume that hooks added in a subclass will be there
 moving ahead. Perhaps it's something that we add and then make
 recommendations to use that instead of in the constructor in the docs.
