Hi Staffan,

Thanks for submitting RFE and implementing it! This event seems to be 
used widely.
So it's very important to design it correctly.
May I ask you to provide some extra information:
- format of event
   (this could be included in the CR description)
- regression tests for that event will be also required
- please include hotspot-dev on CC
