Is it possible to add hydration/dehydration events to a workflow? (this is a Site state machine workflow if it matters, SP 2010).

I guess hydrated/dehydrated are run by system automatically? – Falak Mahmood May 15 '12 at 10:54

Even though SharePoint workflows are in fact WF (Windows Workflow Foundation) workflows and the WF WorkflowRuntime has the WorkflowPersisted, WorkflowUnloaded and WorkflowLoaded events, SharePoint doesn't provide you access to any of these.
