How to embed LibHealComm-3.0 into an addon

LibStub and CallbackHandler-1.0 are required dependencies, and must be included by the addon, before trying to get a reference to LibHealComm-3.0. The reference to LibHealComm-3.0 is obtained by the following code:
local HealComm = LibStub:GetLibrary("LibHealComm-3.0");

API Documentation (Events)

Callbacks are used to signal various events. To register an addon to be notified of a specific event, use the following code:
function MyAddon:OnEnable()
    HealComm.RegisterCallback(self, "HealComm_DirectHealStart");
end

function MyAddon:HealComm_DirectHealStart(event, healerName, healSize, endTime, ...)
    for i=1,select('#', ...) do
        local targetName = select(i, ...);
        DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(healerName .. " is healing " .. targetName .. " for " .. healSize);
    end
end
The various events that can be registered are listed below.
