Thanks for this post, Conlin. I've a question, maybe a naive one. Am trying to reason about why Hooks need a Linked list implementation. One usecase (useCase? ;)) it definitely seems to facilitate is, share state of one Hook to another. Curious to hear your thought process on this.

Maybe also to run all the effects one after another.

Ignore this naive question. I think, I figured out. Linked List allows React to rely on the order of Hooks calls which means, it could preserve state between re-renders.
