Subject:	Re: IndieUI Event Interfaces

Unless I hear objections, I am going to remove the IDL descriptions
altogether b/c IĄŻm not sure they add much value.

I had considered the entirely lowercase event names, but AFAIK, not all
events are defined this way. IĄŻll look for some other examples, but unless
I find some good reasons, IĄŻll make the switch to lowercase.

The constants (UNDO, REDO, etc.) and the eventType attribute defined in the
UIRequestEvent interface should be removed.

sensitive and should be defined in all lower case, rather than camel case
(e.g. "undorequest" instead of "UndoRequest").
