libxl's arrangements for dealing with events are broken.

Following some informal discussions, I have come up with this set of
proposals.  At the moment this is just a set of IDL and header file
changes, describing the new interfaces.

Unfortunately I think it's inevitable that this will be an
incompatible API change.  The existing API is really bad.
