jQuery code snippet to create an event namespace to make it easier to unbind. As you know it is easy to unbind all events with the same namespace. Hopefully this trick will help you with those jQuery binds and unbinds!

//Bind Event One
$("a").bind("click.nameOne", function(){
	console.log("Event One Fire!");
	return false;
});

//Bind Event Two
$("a").bind("click.nameTwo", function(){
	console.log("Event Two Fire!");
	return false;
});

//Unbind all nameTwo events
$("a.utwo").click(function(){
	$("a").unbind(".nameTwo");
});
//Unbind all nameOne events
$("a.uone").click(function(){
	$("a").unbind(".nameOne");
});
