A good enough addEvent

O HAI, this blog is nearly dead these days. But before it truly shuffles off into the sunset, allow me to point you to filosofo's "good enough" addEvent. Austin gets around PPK's pesky requirements by ignoring one of them (namely, having a corresponding removeEvent).

I love this solution because it mirrors much of my recent experiences with JavaScript. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I needed anything more than some variation of toggle() and I can count on one hand the number of times I've need to detach an event since 1998.

Kudos to Austin for thinking differently.
