Public bug reported:

This bug is filed in relation to bug #495017: "AttributeError:
'NoneType' object has no attribute 'payload'"

Markus asks what to do with failed or blocked events in InsertEvents().
This is an important questions since we can't not raise an error or
simply leave the event id out of the response. Clients depend on mapping
the returned event_ids->events.

I propose to say that event id 0, indicates an error. I think this is a
nice solution: easy to implement without breaking API, and easy to
handle for clients because a boolean test "if not event_id : print
'eeeeeek!'" works.
