whatthefuh? What "Boolean" are you referring to? You're being way too
opaque.

Yes, GUIs need notification hooks. The assumption is that the notify_func
would be changed to be able to return a boolean indicating "stop". (but it
won't return an error; that will make things way too complicated, and
theoretically notification callbacks should not raise an eror)

What situations? Clarity...
