Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Re:[Caml-list] Help on Event module wanted.
I too recently had trouble figuring out how the Event module works.  I
eventually experimented with it enough to figure it out, but there are
still some things I am not sure about.

In particular, how do Events behave when there are multiple senders
and/or receivers on a given channel?  By experimenting, I made the
following observations:
 - only one receiver will receive an event (i.e. no broadcasting to
all receivers)
 - multiple senders work as expected (any of the senders may send at any time)
However, I found no documentation supporting any of these
observations.  I also am not sure if using multiple senders/receivers
is thread safe.  If anybody could give me any information on this I
would appreciate it.  Thanks!
