And of course tk/tkinter (tho perhaps we can represent that). It occurs 
to me that while i/o (file/socket) events can be added to a user 
(mouse/key) event loop, and I suspect that some tk/tkinter apps do so, 
it might be sensible to keep the two separate. A master loop could tell 
the user-event loop to handle all user events and then the i/o loop to 
handle one i/o event. This all depends on the relative speed of the 
handler code.
