+Version: 1_0
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: engine

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: events should be per-type, not per instance.
+right now any type that has events defined on it registers the events in
+the ctor (and then maintains instance slots that contain the id for the
+event), for instance:
+class UIElement {
+  int MouseLeftButtonDownEvent;
+UIElement::UIElement ()
+  MouseLeftButtonDownEvent = RegisterEvent ("MouseLeftButtonDown");
+this is wasteful as the fields are allocated in every object when they're
+the same across all objects.  Also, the event registration (and the hash
+table mapping name to id) is also per object when all of it could be per type.
+Maybe we need a DependencyObject::RegisterEvent.
