really?  Python comes with a module that makes it trivial to get
a fully working interpreter console under any kind of UI toolkit
with very little effort, and you think that proves that we need to
reengineer the CPython interpreter to support arbitary event loops
so you don't have to use that module?

as usual, you make absolutely no sense whatsoever.

(or was "..." short for "CPython's interactive mode should use
the code module" ?)
