Several weeks ago, I wrote an alternative mechanism for registering content handlers. When I realized that content handlers are resolved and run against every item in the system I took it upon myself to create a handler registration mechanism.
It turns out that under current loads, the call-and-filter mechanism is not so bad after all. With time, who knows.
But I had already created the API, so I showed it to several of the presenters from Orchard Harvest, with all together positive responses. I submit these changes to you now.
I would like to submit them to the steering committee in the next few weeks.
