I wanted an EventEmitter over a network. Now I have one.

Caveat: events only go over the wire, not locally. So the following won't trigger a console.log. It's possible I'll change this in the future.

var io = new SockEmitter(socket)
io.on('foo', console.log)
io.emit('foo', 42)


on(event, handler)

Handlers are called when an event of the specified type comes over the wire. ### off(event, handler) -> bool Returns false if the handler wasn't found. ### emit(event, ...) Sends the event over the wire with associated arguments. All are JSONified.
