Well, it makes sense but the source doesn't seem to have a clean way
to forumulate these circuit events in a specific way for each
controller connection. In fact, conn->use_extended_events seems unused
in the source and there doesn't seem to be a way to flag an event
string as extended or not...

I will change the REASON syntax tho. It's in my interest to not have it
change on randomly on me :)
