Yes, they're. But since ET epoll has the edge feature that filter events,
you can safely register both events and insertion time *if you want*.

The code does not change much ( I think about 10 lines of code :) ), and
I'm for this option. That has also the other advantage to not change the
API parameters. Obviously man pages will have to be reviewed, but this is
another story :)
