Because:

1) I couldn't find it (I thought you called it eventfs, so I was
searching for the wrong thing).

2) You never answered your ping on IRC

3) I was in a rush to get something out.

;-)


I'm perfectly fine in swapping this out. This is only an RFC anyway.
This is also why I Cc'd you on this patch.
