>From the interface docs, it's not clear to me what the difference
between the events are:

class IObjectModifiedEvent(IObjectEvent):
    """An object has been modified""

class IObjectContentModifiedEvent(IObjectModifiedEvent):
    """An object's content has been modified"""

What is the difference between 'content' that gets modified and the
object that gets modified.

How might I interpret receiving both events for a 'modify' operation on
the same operation?
