+    <title>Description</title>
+
+    <para><function>sd_event_new()</function> allocates a new event
+    loop object. The event loop object is returned in the
+    <parameter>event</parameter> parameter. After use drop
+    the returned reference with
+    <function>sd_event_unref()</function>. When the last reference is
+    dropped the event loop is freed.</para>
+
+    <para><function>sd_event_default()</function> acquires a reference
+    to the default event loop object of the calling thread, possibly
+    allocating a new object if no default event loop object has been
+    allocated yet for the thread. After use drop the returned
+    referened with <function>sd_event_unref()</function>. When the
+    last reference is dropped the event loop is freed. If this
+    function is called while the object returned from a previous call
+    from the same thread is still referenced, the same object is
+    returned again, but the reference is increased by one. It is
+    recommended to use this call instead of
+    <function>sd_event_new()</function> in order to share event loop
+    objects between various components that are dispatched in the same
+    thread. All threads either have no or one default event loops
+    associated, but never more.</para>
+
+    <para><function>sd_event_ref()</function> increases the reference
+    counter of the specified event loop object by one.</para>
+
+    <para><function>sd_event_unref()</function> decreases the
+    reference counter of the specified event loop object by one. If
+    the counter hits zero the event loop object is freed. Not that it
+    is freed regardless if it is the default event loop object of a
+    thread or not. This means that allocating an event loop with
+    <function>sd_event_default()</function>, then releasing it and
+    then acquiring a new one with
+    <function>sd_event_default()</function> will result in two
+    distinct objects. Note that in order to free an event loop object
+    all remaining event sources of the event loop also need to be
+    freed as they each keep a reference to it.</para>
