Summary of upstream discussion: 

 1) move events to schema.json, then it can also be introspected
    (future work) (Luiz)
 2) need to support to return everyting in one shot (Eric)
 3) support filter by cmd/tyep/event name
 4) processe qapi-schema.json for a more explicit wire format
    with metadata (Eric)
 5) dynamic schema (only for compiled/loaded modules) (Kevin)
 6) the real motivation behind full introspection is to allow
    commands/enum/etc to be extended

I'm tring to implement my original throught, it's a little bit slow
because of the effect of other tasks. I will send the draft patch 
next week.
