I specifically wanted to shoot for agent events as they may be used also
in a different way than just connect/disconnect. If we want to report
state of channels too I have a partially finished patch that allows to
do that.

The callback prototype then needs to be different as we need to pass
also the channel name and possibly other data to identify the channel
(and/or serial port? )
