The same kind of output will come from /Command console. As you can see, even
clipboard:// is blocked for both Core and Command. I think that RT could
rethink the issue and definitely move event system into core language, not
just View module. GUI events are just one of possible area of usage. I think
e.g. timers (just another example of event) belong definitely to Core ...
