Summary0002137: removeEventHandler removes all identical handlers

addEventHandler allows you to add a function as a handler to an event as many times as you want. But when you use removeEventHandler, all instances of that handler are removed, instead of just one.

Removing just the first/last may be better because the scripter can choose how many handlers to remove.

TagsNo tags attached.

Not sure what you mean, give an example? should only remove 1 eventHandler:
addEventHandler ( "onConsole", "onConsoleA" )
addEventHandler ( "onConsole", "onConsoleB" )
removeEventHandler ( "onConsole", "onConsoleB" )
...onConsoleA remains

No, i mean adding the same function as a handler of the same event many times:

addEventHandler ( "onConsole",..., "onConsoleA" )
addEventHandler ( "onConsole",..., "onConsoleA" )

(At this point, "onConsoleA" is fired two times per event)

removeEventHandler ( "onConsole",..., "onConsoleA" )

(No "onConsoleA" handlers remain)

You shouldn't even be able to do that anyway, dunno why you'd want to either.

Me neither, I can think of a few examples but there are much better ways to code them.

Thing is, if you're allowing to add the same handler many times, this behavior is somewhat counterintuitive. Disallowing it is OK as well.

currently changed in the server so that 2 handlers can't perform the same event with the same name, might be worth making it so 2 handlers can't have the same name at all, will do the client aswell
