%% The purpose of this module is to allow event handlers to particpate in Erlang
%% supervisor trees. It provide a monitorable process that crashes if the event
%% handler fails. The process, when shutdown, deregisters the event handler.

% Instead calling the
% ok = gen_event:add_sup_handler(error_logger, my_log, Args)
% do this:
% {ok, LinkedPid} = couch_event_sup:start_link(error_logger, my_log, Args)
% The benefit is the event is now part of the process tree, and can be
% started, restarted and shutdown consistently like the rest of the server
% components.
% And now if the "event" crashes, the supervisor is notified and can restart
% the event handler.
% Use this form to named process:
% {ok, LinkedPid} = couch_event_sup:start_link({local, my_log}, error_logger, my_log, Args)
