in reply to Proposal: eliminate down-votes

Hmm, you know, looking at your OP again, I think you undermined your own proposal in the first sentence. You have a sworn enemy on PM? Really?? That right there is the the kind of behavior that down voting is designed to discourage. I realize you think BrowserUK really is your sworn enemy, but for it to have merit, he would have to feel the same about you. And I just do not believe that one. He can be brash, and he definitely speaks his mind, but if you limited your posting to accurate responses, I believe he would be there up voting those posts. I really think you need to look in to the mirror on this one.

[robby_dobby]: Hey monkeys, do you ever get the realization that you're all waking up to chaos? I suppose not :P
[Lady_Aleena]: Good morning Corion, I hope you have a wonderful day as well. 8)
[Corion]: Yesterday I encountered an interesting data structure problem. I have a remote program that emits events, and my client listens for these events with one-shot callbacks, that is, I register the callback and if the event gets generated that callback ...
[Lady_Aleena]: robby_dobby, every day. Chaos is my life with few controls.
[Corion]: ... gets called once. The data structure for that is just a hash of arrays, mapping the event type to a queue of registered one-shots, and the first one-shot from the queue gets removed and called.
[Corion]: But now I want to register a one-shot for two events, of which only one will arrive, so my data structure doesn't work anymore...
[Lady_Aleena]: Corion, ouchy.
[Corion]: (maybe I should write this up as a SoPW) - currently, the "most efficient" data structure I come up with is a single array which I scan for the first fitting one-shot. Not efficient but I don't expect more than five outstanding one-shots anyway
[choroba]: can't you create a meta-key corresponding to the disjunction of the events?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Heh. This whole thing smells of Strategy Pattern or MVC pattern.
