Hello Kasper,

In IronPython events are added using '+=' :

def onClick(sender, event):
   print 'clicked'

button.Click += onClick

To remove it you do:

button.Click -= onClick

Perhaps you could create your own interface for adding to events, which 
keeps track of everything added and allows you to remove them easily ?

I'm not sure if event handlers are simply collections, there may be a 
away of examining them to see what is in there.

I hope this is helpful.
