Oh, in that case I don't see a problem with the current API.  I guess
it's a little weird that a `place?' is both an appropriate argument to
`place-wait' and to `place-recv', but I don't know if it's a good idea
to make both of those actions events.

In any case, you might want to add places to the big list of primitive
things that are events in the event documentation.
