API for writing Rule Chains

Writing Chains

XXX Describe everything you need to know to write chains. Start with

an overview of how chains work, how listeners feed into chains, how chains can delegate to other chains and how a chain stops processing events.

Then describe the incoming event, how to create outgoing events, how to build those up and how to dispatch them. Detail what happens when errors occur in rules.

Describe the up API, how to use logging, lookup tables, dispatchers. Mention the dummy listener and dispatcher here and how to use them.

Lastly devote a large amount of time on how to test chains.
