But it isn't ;-). Gui apps routinely use event loops and/or threads or 
subprocesses to avoid blocking on either user input (which can come from 
keyboard or mouse) and maybe disk operations and calculations. For 
instance, if it became possible to run the test suite from Idle, it 
would need to be non-blocking so one could continue to edit while the 
tests run (15-20 min on my machine, divided by number of cores).
