Hm, sorry. I can't revert it right now, my laptop is at home. I was just getting
rid of the warning when setting the event function. My bad! You can revert this
if you like, cause it will take a few days for my laptop to hit the net again.

If you want to document this behavior too, that would be grand -- i.e. don't set
event functions on sink pads (handle instead in chain functions) but you can set
event masks to advertise what events you support, etc...
