Yeah, I realized I was top-posting after my last email. Mea culpa.

Yaakov already posted the announce list re: libevent. I'll work on
packaging and sending the ITP for tmux soon and relieve Yaakov of having to
maintain libevent, even with Warren's warning in mind.

This is all a little bit of unfamiliarity all at once, but I think I'll
manage. Might as well throw myself to the wolves for the learning

Thanks all.
