Next Deadline: PRR Freeze for Enhancements, September 29th

As operators have gotten more complex, there has been a growth in the use cases for “dynamic listeners”, controllers which can listen to any object type and are configured at runtime. While controllers using the SharedInformer cache pattern have been able to add new listeners on the fly, they haven’t previously been able to shut down and remove listeners that are no longer needed. This has lead to slow bloat issues in some cases, requiring periodic restarts to get back to a minimal state. With this PR,
AddEventHandler and friends now return an opaque handle which can be passed to a new
RemoveEventHandler to do exactly what it says in the name. This unlocks many more efficient operator architectures for complex scenarios.
