Hi Thiago,

thank's a lot for you answer and for your explanation.
Sadly for me, replacing with true/false is not an alternative for my use case.
I will have to rework the whole process.
I have a worker class (with his own thread), and before allowing a new task to be started I have to be sure previous task has been finished.
Depending on the type of task there are more or less slots which are triggered and depending on the parameter each slots could also trigger another slots.
hasPendingEvents() was a very attractive solution for my use case, too bad for me!
