once upon a time there was an idea to also use the buffer for communicating sticky events, i.e. events that would not be counted by sample number but rather general properties (i.e. "start acquisition" and "sampling rate = 1200") It never fully materialized. The snippets of code that pertain to this should be better removed.

I took ownership of this enhancement, since I have to work and test the buffer anyways for #933.

I have been looking at the relevant code for bug #933 and have noticed that the properties code (GET_PRP, PUT_PRP) has already been removed.
