Why do you have the right to have the last say?  (Or to come first,
or whatever?)

Why shouldn't super-nifty-mode be allowed to get the event?

See, whatever it might be that people build into Emacs to allow a
mode to say "I'm more important" -- when you have two modes that say
this, you're in trouble.
