Hmm, this seems a bit odd. The check_arg() arg object member check
the validity of the object itself. What about moving those checker
into dynevent_cmd instead of dynevent_arg?
(Or, just pass the appropriate checker as the 3rd parameter of
this function)

Ditto.

Here, q += delta is redundant, because q is not used anymore.
