Capture remains optional, but no longer raises an exception. However,  
instead of what you request (added but ignored) we have decided to  
silently ignore the attempt to add it (so it's no exception but the  
listener is not added) as there doesn't seem to be much value in  
having a listener added that will never be triggered.

Thank you for your great review, please let us know shortly if this  
does not address your concerns,
