OK - Got it.  I too easily associated the 'MaxCountExceeded' callback with the MaxCountExceededException.
 My first thought was that (Even though the doc says otherwise) if the max is exceeded, then
this is bad, and so an exception should be triggered.  How about removing the MaxCountExceededException
and using a more "Stream" like interface?:

emitter.on('start', cb);
emitter.on('increment', cb);
emitter.on('end', cb);

- Ole

Plus one for "Incrementor(long start, long max).
