Does anyone have experience with using a feature as a module? The usage I am talking about is strictly placing hooks inside the .module file. Can that trigger any sort of bug?
Of course, you can use a feature like a "normal" module.
Feature use .module file only for include a file, so after this include you could add your custom code. And obviously you can add more files, directories, etc.
It's a great way to avoid to create too many modules.
I've used a feature as a "normal" module without any problems. I've found it very convenient.
