Perhaps I should add a method to events.ISelector to support this.

I'm curious how this use case would be handled with 'peak.events'.  I 
haven't yet felt a strong need for it myself, obviously, else I'd have 
added it to UntwistedReactor.  Do you have a sample usage or kinds of usage 
that I could see, so I could see how I'd write it with peak.events, and 
make sure it's still tractable?
