source is what you have to subscribe to listen for the events they send.
The difference between ``Distributor`` and a ``Broadcaster`` is a very simple
one. You may assign more then one listener (or callback) to an event source.
When the event source generates a given event it will iterate over it's
listeners, by the order they were subscribed, and send the event to each
one. In the case of a ``Distributer`` when one of its listeners returns
``True`` the iteration stops.
