New in boduch 0.0.4

I thought I'd mention what is going on development-wise in the boduch Python library. The upcoming 0.0.4 release has a new handler for EventSetPush events. This handler is what actually pushes data onto the set instance that produces the event. Typically, there is no point. The push() method may as well be responsible for actually pushing the data onto the set instance.

There are cases where we may want to send the data being pushed somewhere remote in addition to the set. Also, when creating reactive interfaces that "sit on top of" the library, this could potentially increase the responsiveness.

There will also be a new Hash data type. This data type is essentially a Python dictionary that will emit events. It will follow a similar interface as that provided by the Set data type.
