/the exact syntax isn't really important/
/abstract type and implementation separation is the important point/

Actually, if I want to force it, that syntax could work using the same 
magic used by event-based systems: registration. Although I agree it 
might be a bit cumbersome to do registration for something like this, but 
as I've said before, exact syntax is not really important.
