Can't remember exactly.  It adds a fair bit of "noise" to view-lossage
and might introduce some breakage in some cases because of the
unexpected new events.

I can try and dig up the patch if you're interested (it was not cleaned
up but worked well enough not to get in the way of my personal use tho
I never ended up writing code that took advantage of it).
