I don't really follow, no.  Could you give an example?

The plan for listeners is for it to be based properly on message passing 
between objects, rather than straight callbacks.  Once messages are sent 
out, there isn't really a guarantee on ordering, so if you need a strong 
cause and effect trigger, you should probably have an intermediate 
object that subscribes to the primary object, does some work, and then 
passes it on to the next listener...

Or are you trying to do some kind of filtering?
