Keep in mind that not all callbacks have the same i/o characteristics.
For example, 'process_input_buffer' has:

   function(<string> buffer)
     return <string> adjusted_buffer

so if you chain processing functions, you will want to feed the
output of earlier functions into later functions (otherwise, the net
effect is exactly the same as running only the last function).

Btw, callback.add() could just return false when it detects a
conflict with an already existing function, and true otherwise.
Then the caller could decide how to handle the error.

Best wishes,
