hmm. i think it's more complex than this. so some pseudocode:

-> event_call(obj, ev1)
---> event_cb_add(obj, ev1)

so what to do here? when the event cb is added to the
end of the array should it be called again while event_call() is still
calling.. in this case i'd say it shouldn't.

now here comes the complex stuff:

-> event_call(obj, ev1)
---> event_cb_add(obj, ev1)
---> event_call(obj, ev1)

so now what? inside the 2nd event_call should we call the callback we just
added before? yes. i'd say so... now combine with the 1st case above. .. what
happens when we go back and return to the FIRST event_call. we called in the
child event_call()... should we call in the parent? hmmmm.... i'd say no.

how do we make this work AND make it efficient? but the above 2 cases are
pretty much a core concept that would expand to all other cases up and down the
stack. i agree that once you add an event that future event callback calls
should trigger it... but only future event callback calls that are STARTED
after the event cb add. not existing ones that are still "being processed".

discussion points?
