I don't want to remove initErrorEvent() because that would just cause
troubles later if we ever add createEvent().
In the meantime, though, I don't see a really compelling reason to add
event creation to the worker API set, so I haven't changed anything there
for now. If DOM3 Events adds constructors or whatever, it can expose them
to Workers easily enough.
