While you're at it, please fix the description for wait and tryWait, 
they are most probably wrong. What is returned is an 
epicsEventWaitStatus, not boolean. When interpreted as boolean the 
return value is zero (false) if the event *did* happen 
(epicsEventWaitOK) and non-zero (true) if it did not happen 
(epicsEventWaitTimeout) or if an error happened (epicsEventWaitError). 
At least this is what the names suggest.

Cheers
Ben
