Another tortured function signature. It seems entirely possible
@global_evt will be the next.

The comment doesn't make sense... (maybe at this stage)

I was initially thinking !local_first would have to imply !global_empty,
but after going back and reading the previous patches again, I found
this was not so. Still slightly surprising.
