Description Philip J├Ągenstedt 2009-10-20 22:18:15 UTC
Step 1 is not relevant because there's no way to call the load() method recursively any longer.

Instead of setting aborted/emptied, simply queue a task to fire events at that point in the algorithm. The difference is indistinguishable in black box testing.

Neither of these make any difference to implementation, it's purely editorial at this point.
