Um, I disagree. Cold does indeed dispatch events. The evnts are hard coded
into the system and are as follows:
(1) packet arrival
(2) heartbeat
(3) connection
(4) conenction close

There may be a few mreo im forgettting. in each case the event is
dispatched in teh form of a method call to an object.

If thsi doesnt fit your def of "event driven" then I tyhink yer beign way
too selective in teh application of this term.

The Amiga's Intuition was clearly event driven, yet all it did was call c
callback functions.
