I just worked around this problem by allowing users to add anonymous functions to a set of functions that get called for each notice.  It's sort of a parallel track to the event based pathway that is only used when things need to be run closer to real time.

It will at least give us the ability to support the near realtime constraints of the drop script and the easy event based extension mechanism.
