As someone who has tried a great many oddball ways
of processing events, I can attest to the wisdom
of JD's words here.
But I also note that as I've gained more experience
with widgets and events, that my event processing has
become more conservative (as opposed to, say, my
politics). And now I often find myself a proponent of
the Occum's Razor school of event handling, in which the
simpler is the better. :-)
P.S. Let's just say I have enough to worry about
keeping track of those darn object methods to
worry overly much about events flying around everywhere.
