I would not mind if we get it working right ;) Do we need to turn off
"undesirable" handlers or do we want to limit output to one particular
handler? I'd prefer the former, if possible. Do we keep a counter or
set of counters so several processes can mask output, etc. Can we keep
event delivery somewhat fast?
