Though absent a real event loop with a callback model, there it will
need to be implemented with a real sleep(epsilon) and a total timeout.
 Terminal frontends will always simply be bound to flushing what they
can and then moving on if nothing has come in a given window they wait
for.  Such is life when your 'event loop' is the human hitting the
RETURN key...

Evan, quick question: when I open your frontend_widget, I see 100% cpu
utilization all the time.  Do you see this on your end?
