Sounds good to me.

Huh.... sounds like we need a "don't bug me again" button... ;).

This is a great idea!
But to me it looks like you are going to increase the complexity of the
code with this. The programmer has to disable the callback and remember
to enable it (at the right time)... and it looks like you can easily be
trapped in infinity callbacks.
It looks like we need a way to distinguish between changes made by the
user and the one made by the programm, right ?

;). The last one looks great.
