On read there isn't much point anyway, on write if you simply send one,
save an event counter number and don't send another until the last one is
cleared it all works well. When the last event is cleared if another
event has occurred then the event counter will have changed so you know
to send one immediately, if the app doesn't want to receive them for a
while it can just hang onto the event for a minute or two before clearing
