Last time I checked, it was a static map if I remember correctly, inside a
While I like the basic idea of Synapse, I do not like that I do not have
any control as to where the observers are stored.
It was my only complain at the initial presentation of the library.
I didn't have time yet to look at this version of the library (I will
