    The template used for Google Analytics, while good, is not extensible. A better one would be this

    <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.googleAnalyticsWebPropertyId}"><script>
        var _gaq = [['_setAccount', '{$xenOptions.googleAnalyticsWebPropertyId}']];
        <xen:hook name="google_analytics_before" />   
        <xen:hook name="google_analytics_after" />
        !function(d, t)
            var g = d.createElement(t),
                s = d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0];   
            g.async = true;
            g.src = ('https:' == d.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
            s.parentNode.insertBefore(g, s);
        (document, 'script');
        </script><xen:comment><!--Adapted from http://mathiasbynens.be/notes/async-analytics-snippet--></xen:comment></xen:if>
    This template adds two hooks before and after _trackPageview, this is necessary because there are some operations that need to be done before trackPageView (like custom vars for segments), and some that can be done after (like pageSpeed)
