Ah, this rings a bell.
I think according to the Windows CE compatibility guide, you're supposed
to show the hourglass until your application is "ready for user input".
I believe it's up to the application .py file, not any libraries or
interpreter, to make the Busy(0) call.
Only the application author knows how many modules need to be loaded and
when the application really has "started".
