tapping into finder events

Here is another question (and one I would like not to have had to  
think of this late)... let's say one was able to get all of this  
running... was able to write automatic Finder level reactions to  
Finder level events.  These reactionary events (the events my stacks  
initiated in response to other Finder level events) would of course  
also show up in the Finder event loop, which could potentially set  
off a hopelessly complex feedback reverb loop of action-reaction  
automation.   Know what I mean?  How would one separate changes made  
external to my stacks actions from those scripted by me?
