One of the things I’m working on is Event Receivers in SharePoint but I’ve found registering the event receivers to be a bit on the annoying side. Yes you can do it with the feature.xml Receivers section and there is the great El Blanco Event Receivers Manager.
I personally prefer desktop GUI applications and so, based on code by Liron, I’ve created my own desktop Event Receiver Manager. It allows you to select site & list, browse for an assembly so it can give you the full assembly name and a list of classes inside, and a list of receivers you can attach to.
The current version only allows adding new event receivers. Before adding a new receiver it will check to make sure the same receiver doesn’t already exist.
Future plans for it include listing existing receivers to allow users to delete them but as I don’t need to do that myself yet I haven’t implemented it.
