To answer my own question, it looks like the event handling
functionality can be emulated using pf_queue... (more inline below)

Yes, but I've got to bring it up with management before I discuss it
much publicly. You know how the biz folks are, I'm sure :)

Sounds good to me. I see y'all are using git, so I might as well
