@MikeSmith has right, it's not supported OOB. You don't need however any event receivers to achieve that. We have a home-made PowerShell + C# -based solution for a similar problem (we aim to document the state of the permission settings on a daily basis, kind of reporting, to be able to confirm / reproduce the settings later). It simply browses the structure of the site structure, looking for the security settings and archives them into CSV-files and / or SQL tables.
