Subject Re: sandbox proposal. Events

FYI, [events] in the sandbox is/was an attempt to create a set of decorators
for collections that call listeners when objects are added/removed/updated
etc.

The project began life in [collections] but was factored out as not ready
(and to reduce the size of [collections] at the time of 3.0). There has been
no recent activity. Its not that its a bad idea, but that it requires effort
in time and doesn't scratch an itch of mine at present. Also, there were
various comepting designs which made life awkward.

I would not be completely averse to suggestions to rename [events], however
I would like to keep the code in the sandbox at present. (PS, I think
[collections-events] would be a bad name if there is also an [events]).
