I've been very slowly starting to put together a Pacman-style game
using microthreads, where each of the four monsters gets a thread.
I haven't given any thought to applying microthreads to the issue
of dialog boxes and event loops, but it definitely sounds like a
possible application. If you're on a Unix box, you'll find everything
you need at
I think there may be changes in my tarball that haven't yet made it
into the Windows version of Stackless Python, so I can't guarantee that
a Windows build would work.

Resistance is futile. Capacitance is efficacious.
