EventEmitter::listeners() returns "[" when no listeners available. #6

there was a naming conflict in class EventEmitter, listeners was a function and an array, which resulted in the function returning "[" instead of an empty array when no listeners for an event are found.

What's the status on this? Where were you using this? What is extending the EventEmitter with its own listeners variable?

I actually tried to use an event emitter as a proxy object for dnode.

So, problem solved. Thanks for asking.

Example, with dnode:

class Proxy extends EventEmitter {
$proxy = new Proxy();
$dnode = new DNode\DNode($proxy);

I now use an $emitter member variable, so dnode does not have to sync the event emitters members, and i don't have a strange behavior when calling listeners() for events that have no listeners.
