Sample usage:

Up to a given container element:

$(domEle).click(function(event) {
      //prints out everything up to domEle     
      console.log(KoreSampl.fromEvent(event, domEle));      
});

Everything up to root html node

$(window).click(function(event) {
      //prints out everything up to domEle     
      console.log(KoreSampl.fromEvent(event));      
});
