SockEmitter

I wanted an EventEmitter over a network. Now I have one.

Caveat: events only go over the wire, not locally. So the following won't trigger a console.log. It's possible I'll change this in the future.

var io = new SockEmitter(socket)
io.on('foo', console.log)
io.emit('foo', 42)

SockEmitter(socket)

on(event, handler)

Handlers are called when an event of the specified type comes over the wire.

off(event, handler) -> bool

Returns false if the handler wasn't found.

emit(event, ...)

Sends the event over the wire with associated arguments. All are JSONified.
