dispatch: add an additional extensibility point during dispatch

An upcoming patch will introduce an ordering dependency between the
color and pager extensions. Specifically, one's uisetup function must
come before the other's.

There is no easy way to accomplish guaranteed ordering of extension
functions. The Mercurial project has survived many years without an
explicit dependency system between extensions. Instead of inventing
one to solve this problem, we instead create a new, separate monkeypatch
point for the color extension to use to ensure its code runs after
pager's. It is ugly. But it is simple.
