class EventQueue;

 *  Base class for all events. Intended to be subclassed to introduce new events
 *  and handlers for them.
 *  Subclasses usually reimplement virtual #handler() (that does nothing by
 *  default) and add new data members describing the event.

    Event() {}


    virtual ~Event() {};

     *  Event handler. Called in the context of the event queue's thread.
     *  Always reimplemented by subclasses
     *  @return reserved, should be NULL.
00071     virtual void *handler() { return NULL; }

    friend class EventQueue;

 *  Simple event queue.
 *  On Linux, if this queue is created on the main thread, it automatically
 *  processes XPCOM/IPC events while waiting for its own (Event) events.
