But for this use case you'd want to see all the event listeners, including all 
the UA-internal ones, etc, and that's not something we want to be exposing to 
web content.  If I were implementing this, I'd just create an API that wasn't 
exposed to web content that exposes this information to the debugger.  There are 
APIs along these lines for style data and so forth that Firebug uses, for what 
it's worth.
