was there a purpose of this beyond that if EventEmitter's constructor/emit not existing in C++, that other c-bindings wont have access to EventEmitter?

So how are we supposed to be able to emit events from C++ land? Or is that no longer possible at all?

@mscdex: this is how you would (approximately) go about it. obj is the object that should receive the event.

Local<Object> obj = /* ... */;
Local<Value> val = obj->Get(String::NewSymbol("emit"));
if (val->IsFunction()) {
  Local<Function> fun = val.As<Function>();

  Local<Value> argv[2] = {

  TryCatch tc;
  fun->Call(obj, 2, argv);
  if (tc.HasCaught()) {
    // handle exception
