What needs to be defined is not the name of the parameter for  
handleEvent, you could have handleEvent: function (foo) {...} and  
it'll work just fine. What we do need is the name of the variable  
that's automatically made available to you inside <handler> and event  
attributes (since you can't define it yourself).
