Add stopImmediatePropagation to event objects

We got requests in the past, for a way to stop the execution of other handlers from within one.

I realize this could be easily done, by extending event objects with a method that is already a standard (DOM 3 events, included in AS3).

Check this and this for additional info.

Good concept that fixes an annoying issue.

The patch could be improved a bit by replacing the "event[expando] == -1" bit with something more clear. Use a value that makes it obvious that its related to event propagation, not a magic number like -1.

Could be a string... but what for, it's just longer/heavier.

What would you propose Joern ?
