not exactly. the code above is actually an endpoint for event listener. 
the event listener itself is threaded so in theory, we have 64 of these 
endpoints/loops. you can override the threads to have just one but 
that's where things slow down a lot. we handle this in ceilometer by 
having many single thread listeners each handling it's own queue[1]. i 
still need to publish diagram on how that works.

deleted your sequence diagram since it's malformed in my response but 
that is pretty cool.

a few questions:
- when alarm creation event arrives at evaluator it creates a thread to 
process alarm. this thread will timeout and raise a new event if it 
doesn't receive event in time? i don't understand why we need a 
timeout.end event? can the evaluator not just update_alarm and notify if 
we timeout? or update_alarm and skip notify if we receive event on time?
