[Feature idea] Allow custom dependent callbacks on has_many Associations

I was thinking of implementing a way to use custom method names for dependent has_many Associations.
This way I wouldn’t have to use workarounds like rewriting destroy methods, or stuffing code handling other models into methods for before_destroy callbacks.

class Thing < ApplicationRecord

belongs_to :owner, class_name: ‘User’

def reset_owner

set owner to another user based on settings



class User < ApplicationRecord

has_many :things, dependent: :reset_owner



I don’t think other kinds of Associations would need to support this.

What do you think?
