Message/Event Driven Application Design

While object oriented may be the way to go with the recent developments in PHP 5, and growth of IDEs like Zend Studio and Netbeans, event driven design seems to provide a way of reducing the coupling between class modules

The separation of objects initiating the events, and the processing of the events even with auditing in place.
