Just like Linus Torvalds decided he wanted to be the Linux integrator, someone will emerge who wants to put together the best version of various variations of various hacks. If he or she does a good job, he or she will become respected and people will look first to him or her to find a version of a hack they want to use.

Information about a hack, like "this hack is the best of the bunch", is really best not put into the hack name, because later if the information changes (maybe you find out the hack has a bug), now you have a name that's giving bad information.
