I do not like it either, even more so that it can be implemented in pure
C++. But I am not religious on this subjet. However, my point was not on
the way this was implemented, it was that at least one system with some
sort of signal/event was implemented in C++. Even if it is not perfect,
it can be used to get ideas from it (both for do and for don't) and to
see what real users make out of it.
