Hiya Ken - drop me a line, man ;^)

I was just about to write that the 'pythonic' choices here 
would appear to be between:

  - some kind of event / delegate decorator

  - or some magical Event base class in builtins, etc.

I'm generally (and usually specifically) opposed to magic, so 
I was asking myself whether the Python community at large have 
adopted decorators as 'pythonic' yet. Possibly not, but if it 
seems to be The Future, then I like that a lot better (and I 
like it better as a sustainable pattern to bridge these kinds 
of gaps) than anything else I can think of...
