""" Global registry for available event interfaces

Intended usage:

    Various generic Event processors may want to be able to list possible
    events, such as for listing them for selection in a UI.

    - Event interfaces should be registered with this registry through the
      registerEvent call, passing in both the interface and a title, and
      optionally a definition. If no definition is given, the Interface
      docstring will be used instead.

    - TODO: fill in listEvents interface.
