Since the VB style of cancelling events (which is only available 
in a few event handlers) is to set a ByRef argument called 
Cancel to true, we're going to be departing from VB style no 
matter how we do it.

I have to admit that RETURN TRUE to cancel an event makes a lot 
of sense to me now that I know about it (though if the IDE 
automagically created event subs as functions so I didn't have 
to manually edit each one, it'd help) but making it more obvious 
to new users (the "CANCEL EVENT" syntactic sugar) is a good 
idea, I think.
