I'm not sure we'd even need to go as far as a module.xml syntax.  What 
about simply...

class OperationContext {
   public void addCompletionObserver(CompletionObserver obs) {

interface CompletionObserver {
   void operationComplete(OperationContext op);
   // This could even be operationSucceeded() and operationFailed()

This seems like it could be very handy, really easy to add, and it would 
let Handlers programatically do what Bill's looking for (I think?). 
We've already got OperationContext.setComplete() as the hook for this. 
Is there a major reason not to put this in now?  Seems a very small 
change which would provide clear value.
