Right, you want each program to have the ability to export events along
with some data so that everything that happens on a system/network/etc.
can be correlated and acted upon in a centralized way. It's an easy way
to construct a big picture of what exactly is going on.
Lacking such a mechanism, however, here's the cleanest way to "fix" such
(See, e.g., "Stateful Tracking Options.")
This PR should be closed.
