The library would consider all events as independent
slots that need to be created by the app or
internally. It is similar to the MFC's message maps.
Any events that are processed by the library
internally will be processed as atomic (stateless)
actions (I hope).

The "generic state machines" are a must for any useful
GUI library. The proposed library will be the
foundation for creating the next layer that will
include "generic state machines". For example a list
control with editable labels needs to be defined in
terms of state machine as well as many other standard
constructions. But first we need to create a solid
set of building blocks.
